Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
A quilt is not a quilt, until it has been blessed by a cat.

I have to agree, my cat helps me with every stage of my quilt. When I draw an idea for a quilt it's likely to get chewed on (he loves to chew on paper). When I'm hand quilting it he tries to kick it out of my lap. I've even got pictures of him checking out some of my quilts. But I must also add that a quilt is not a quilt unless it's used. Since I make mostly baby quilts to give away I always tell the recipient that a quilt is not through giving its warmth until it is worn out. I want my quilts to be used until they're ragged, stained and not longer needed. Unless I make a wall hanging I don't ever want to see it on a wall.
All mine are certified, too! I always have to go over the finished ones with a lint roller before sending them off to their new owners. Two Siamese think they need to deposit light hairs on the dark fabric, and dark hairs on the light.
Then all my quilts are official. I can't keep the cat off no matter how hard I try.. thank goodness the dog weighs 140 lbs and hasn't tried to jump on anything since she was a puppy.
i concur. read the title rushed here to read your blog....oh well...but i still concur...but may i add.... a quilt is not a quilt, until it has been blessed by a cat-- and the wdog that they snuggle with.
