Trying to Quilt

It is going to be a long haul ….. everytime I sit down to quilt, one of the kitties has to visit me. Hank has to make sure that the tension in my hoop is just right as well as giving my hands a lick down.
Once she goes away, Ashes comes around to make sure that what I’ve quilted is snuggle quality. Yep …. it is going to be a long haul trying to get this UFO finished before New Year’s Eve.
On the other hand, here is another block done. At least something got accomplished.

Have a great day!

Your blocks are beautiful! At least your cats know a great quilt when they see it and can't resist touching it!

Well, you certainly won't be cold while quilting! Between the darling kitties and the quilt itself, you'll spend the fall all warm and toasty. My George could heat a small room just with his own body heat :)

I can´t imagine how you get on with the quilting :) the cats must be heavy.

Looks perfectly normal to me, LOL, lap quilts for lap cats. :) Pretty quilt your stitching on there.

Don't they love to get on that lap.
I would toss the quilt over mine.....only have one to contend with and she would happily sleep under it.
Good luck with strategy, but don't you just love that furry warmth.

It is so wonderful the way our pets get involved in so many aspects of our quilting! Your quilts are beautiful.

It will be a long haul to get the quilt finished as they cats are just too cute to shush away :))

The stitchery block sampler is lovely. Good luck with finishing everything by January!

Looks like situation normal to me! I'm convinced that the added warmth of a layer of cat hair is what makes quilts extra special! LOL Lester and Smudge also like to take turns "helping" me quilt. After the cold weather we had last night I'm looking forward to it this winter!

I agree with Marilyn...your cats know a great quilt when they see one!!! I love the pics of you sitting in your quilting spot!
