Carolina Crossroads

Jasper hunkered down on my quilt in my chair

With a week to spare before our quilt show, my Carolina Crossroads quilt is ready to hang. I'm used to working on little quilts so this one seemed huge! Jasper had to test it as soon as I set it down on my chair. He slept there all night so I guess he approves. If you want more information about our quilt show next week, click on the link for Piecemakers Quilt Guild on my sidebar.

Any quilt that gets the 'Pet Seal of Approval' is sure to be a winner in the show *s*

Your quilt is fantastic. It's always best when Jasper is afoot though I have to admit. Nothing like one of the most cuteamous cat's to add just that perfect finish to a Perfect Finish!

I am clapping for you over here... can you hear me?!?! It's so beautiful! That border fabric was just perfect for it! I knew you could finish it in time for the show! I hope I finish mine in time for our show in October!

Kim said...

Very pretty and Jasper's such a cutie :)

hetty said...

I agree with Jasper! Cats know a thing or two about quilts! And that quilt is beautiful!

Sharon said...

Your quilt is beautiful...congrats on a big finish! It's hard to do a big quilt when you're used to small...kind of intimidating, isn't it? And Jasper is a very handsome cat, who obviously has good taste in quilts!

Béa said...

Wonderful choice of colours/ fabrics. Congrats on your finish.

Your quilt is just great Jeanne. And, you know if Jasper has given his seal of approval, it's passed the test.
