Not Your Grandmother’s Quilt

That’s the name of the pattern of this quilt.  It was pieced by Betsy, one of my TTT gal gang.  She took the class from Anita Bowen at Pieceable Retreat in the fall of 2008.  Betsy is planning to give it to one of her daughters for Christmas.  She wanted custom quilting but not heavy.  I did stitch in the ditch around each block part and then used a circle template and a ruler to give it a very formal, traditional quilting pattern.

Callie Cat loves to get under the quilts when they are draped over the rails of the longarm and play hide and seek.  She inspected the top and back of this one and gave it the Kitty Kat seal of approval.

    Absolutely beautiful quilting. I know Betsy will be well pleased. That Callie, she seems to think all the quilts in the studio are for her pleasure. Typical cat mentality. Sheila

    My wife’s godmother is a quilter and an animal lover. She lives in California and it isn’t quite as big there as it is in the south (beautiful weather has a direct effect on that). Either way, beautiful cat!
