    My mom was an avid quilter for many, many years but is no longer able to do the thing she loved best - quilt, embroider and all around sewing. I am so glad to have this beautiful quilt hand made by her. My cat also seems to love it!

    Absolutely beautiful! You are very lucky to have that. May have a tough time getting it away from your cat though 8-) Your Mom does grand work! :thumbup:

    That is absolutely beautiful. You have a real treasure there.
    Your mom did lovely work and should have shown it at a quilt show. I'll bet it would win the blue easily.

    Yes, Sammy is a Burman who I got in 2001. Whenever I change bed sheets or when I was just trying to arrange this quilt he goes beserk...he is very funny!

    Nice to have something made by your mother. When you use it, you will always think of her.

    Wow! Absolutely stunning! Your mom is so talented, you'll treasure that heirloom for many years. I love your cat...is that a Birman or Ragdoll? I had 2 Birman's before, sweet kitties indeed.
    Blessings,

    My Sammy is a Burman Sealpoint. He is definately a "lapcat" when he wants to be. A very wonderful companion!
