It's Still Snowing ... I'm Still Quilting

A new storm blew in last night and the big fat snowflakes are going to continue to fall for a while.

Another snow storm

And I'm still quilting the Holiday Flannel Stripes with some loopy texture. Linking this simple example to Leah's FMQ Friday.

Quilting Detail

Impatient JohnnyThe cats have been hanging out with me, each in their own way.

Johnny wants a quilt that stops moving around as I quilt it, so he can settle in for a nap. 

Grace Hopper thinks I ought to stop and go upstairs with her and provide her with a warm lap–the studio is cold today as the temps outside drop again. 

Somehow, I have managed to finish the center of the quilt ... and now, onto the borders. 

I know both cats will be happy when I'm sitting in a comfortable chair with the quilt on my lap, stitching down the binding.  Me, too.

Grace - not helping

I love you new quilt. I thought you moved to a place where it didn't snow ... am I lost?

Oh lots of snow, huh? we are totally socked in with fog this week--sooo gloomy! I love your loopy quilting--it really is perfect for the straight bars on your quilt--which I love...hugs, Julierose

did you get the cats to pose for you by promising extra treats? mine never sits on the stuff I'm actually quilting (but if I leave a single scrap of fabric on the table when I go out, he'll be on it when I come home...)

Beautiful cats. This is definitely the weather for having a quilt covering your lap while you bind. =) This post and the next one remind me why I never considered living in Santa Fe.

Your cats have great taste. Flannel quilts are perfect antidote for a snowy, cold winter.

Very pretty quilting. Don't know how you do it with the cats on the quilt. Also, it should not snow in New Mexico. It snows here in Minnesota!
