    Great work and finish thanks for sharing- love how the washing of it made it looked cuddly and loved.
    ''To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did."- Try that new quilt pattern!!

    Thanks Prissnboot. I know exactly what you mean. Last night I looked at the empty quilt hoop in the living room and felt just a little sad until I saw three of my four cats frolicking on my quilt on the bed...Congratulations on finishing your quilt top...I have retired from the world of deadlines myself. It is wonderful to feel so free, but it will be positively decadent when I start the next project.

    Thanks Quilter 65. My cats can certainly attest to the comfort factor. I wonder if anyone who isn't a quilter can really appreciate how good it feels to take that final stitch?

    Too cute, but I was expecting a quilt with a dog fabric.

    Thanks Mary. Like so many here, I just love collecting fabric. Deciding on which ones to use isn't always easy, but it is always fun.

    Thanks Delta. There really isn't anything like a quilt. There just isn't anything about them that isn't wonderful. How did I live before I became a quilter?

    Carol, you are so right. Nothing in life is more satisfying than the creative process. I can't wait to share the next one, and the next,...

    Thanks Florafab. I want to experiment with FMQ, but my heart will always be in hand-quilting. There is no better therapy in the world.

Plus 16 comforters and 10 biscuit quilts.
    Thanks Phyllis. Wow, 108, that is impressive. So you have felt this kind of satisfaction often. You must be addicted. :-) That is so cool. I'm in awe.

    What is a biscuit quilt?

    Thanks Lori. I had a different name in mind, but this one just seemed to fit. It is hand-quilted. I love machine quilting but as long as my hands still work, hand-quilting is it for me. I just love hand-quilting, on my lap, in a hoop, on the couch, while watching TV. It is akin to peace on earth.

    I like the variety of fabrics in your yellow quilt. I'm collecting yellow fabrics to make one of my own-pattern
    still in thought stage.

    Hey quiltlady--thanks for the kind words. You're right though--there really is something about that first washing. It was scary though. I bought the polka dot fabric from Walmart and it was obviously not as nice as some of the other fabric. (I couldn't resist it though.) I feared the dots would fade or the colors run. I was very lucky. I used a color-catcher, and it came out clean.

    LOL! That would be interesting, given that I'm definitely a cat person. hehe! For the record, I've had dogs all my life too.

    Thanks--I found that it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. They are out there though, so just be patient. Now that I'm finished, I'm sure I will find lots more yellows than I know what to do with. Ya know what is really hard--try to find yellow bath towels, yellow sheets, or yellow throw rugs. I am starting to think yellow has been banished from shelves or something.
