And now for something a little different…

A quick post to celebrate finishing a project on my 2016 FAL list.2016 button 250 best

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.P1070947

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.

  1. Bravo on the finish and the anti-cat furball idea though wondering if it is too nice for that purpose! My cat makes quite a noise before so I can shove her outside! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

  2. Itctually improves the comfort level of the sofa for humans too. I am waiting for an upholstery course locally, so I can recover the sofa. This time I will make sofa cushion covers that remove easily, then the quilt will be superfluous.
