A quick post to celebrate finishing a project on my 2016 FAL list.
Please forgive the vulgarity, but this quilt is known as the “Anti-cat Puking Quilt”. We have a cat named Charlie, a Le Perm. He has coarse, crinkly hair, and a tendency to bring up fur-balls with little or no notice. I daresay I don’t need to elaborate further.
This quilt will hopefully protect the sofa from further “accidents”, since the seat covers are very difficult to remove and clean.
I cut the strips over a year ago, and they sat reproachfully in a corner of my Quilt Room. After piecing this quilt I donated the remainder to the Arts Recycling Centre. They were bought within a few minutes of arriving, so were not wasted.
I backed the quilt with cotton canvas, and left it without batting. Partly this was because I am out of batting, but I also justified it as the quilt being more of a coverlet, and not really needing batting.
Two finishes down, and many more to go.
Linking up eventually with the 2016 FAL, and for now with Scraptastic Tuesday.
