For this Friday Felines, I have an FO for you. But it’s kind of a cheat. Ages ago, Mom was cleaning out her sewing room, and asked me if I wanted one of her UFOs to finish for the cats.
It was one of her early efforts – a baby quilt she’d made from a charm pack. She started to do some straight line quilting on it, but she kept getting puckers. She got frustrated with it and set it aside.
It only needed binding.
It’s been sitting in my UFO pile since then – and she gave it to me several months before we moved. But as I was putting the binding on Burton’s winter quilt, it caught my eye. And I realized it was the perfect size for the kitty cabana.
So, after finishing the binding on Burton’s quilt, I went into the scrap binding bin and pulled out something that would work, and got to sewing.
Lemmy helped me sew the binding down – it’s quickly becoming one of his favourite activities.
After an evening of sewing it was finished.
Lemmy gave it a thorough quality test before I tried it out in the cabana.
IT’s the perfect size! The cabana is on the porch for the winter so the cats can still enjoy it right now. And come spring, it will go out in the yard. I think the quilt is going to look fantastic amidst all the flowers!
