    Experimenting here. Seeing if I can do this. :?:

    This is one of my projects that is waiting to be quilted. It's only been on hold for a little over a year now. This is the year that I hope I can finally decide how to quilt it. Suggestions?

    Okay, here I go. Let's see if I can do this. If not...

    Oh, that's our little (18 pound) kitty, Kimchee. He's the official quilt inspector at our house.

    Yvonne, very very nice! As for a quilting pattern, I would concider an over all design. The quilt itself is too busy to show off quilting and would be lost. It never hurts to age a top a bit, gives you a chance to look at it with fresh eyes when thinking of a quilting design. As I am sure you know, kitties are the best quilt inspectors. Mine help me find loose threads. :lol:

    Thank you all for the kind words. They are most appreciated!

    Hopefully I can get back into the sewing room soon and do some quilting on it. Hey, it could happen! :lol: It's only been a year of comtemplation!
    (we decided contemplation sounded so much better than procrastination!) :D

    Yvonne, I LOVE the RED and the pattern. I'm planning a purple / lilac quilt for my granddaughter and think this pattern might just be it.

    Love the cat ... since I have SIX of them.... Samantha (19), Sunshine (6), Beauregard, Billy White Shoes, Mr. Twigs and Little Bit (all 1 1/2 yrs)... and the last 4 were finds off side of the road. They lower our blood pressure and rule the house...

    By the way, Little Bit swallowed a needle and thread. $267 vet bill to remove it. Thank goodness, they got it with a scope and didn't require surgery.

    So lock the cats out of the sewing room !!

    I have a cat who goes from room to room with me. She loves to lay on my table where I'm sewing, sometime right on top of the magazine I'm using to make my quilt. So I made her a bed in that spot and she's happy to sleep there while I quilt.

    Love the quilt, love the cat! We have 2 quilt cats in our house, Smoky weighs over 20 lbs. but still manages to jump up on my cutting table and inspect my fabric, and Hemingway, normal size cat but with 6 toes on each paw, who also checks out my projects. So far, all are cat approved! Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you again for the kudos everyone. You are most encouraging. The time is just about right to quilt this thing now. I have another top on the design board that I want to finish first. :wink: Always some reason to procrastinate. I will be machine quilting this. I'm not ready to hand quilt a large quilt just yet. Someday though.

    NCMtnHigh, I hope Little Bit, who swallowed the needle and thread, has learned his lesson and didn't suffer any ill effects of his little *snack*. My kitty, Kimchee, likes to crawl up on the guest bed in my sewing room and nap. He follows me around like a puppy dog. The one time he "helped" me quilt he was absolutely no help at all. He was laying on the quilt as I was trying to do free motion quilting. Ha! Try moving a large quilt with an extra 18 pounds sitting on it! Doesn't work!!!

    Happy quilting everyone! :D

    I live your quilt top. Bright colors are my favorites. If you are machine quilting I would just stitch in the ditch, so it won't take away from the beauty of the fabrics.
