The Test of a Quality Quilt
I can always tell it'll be a warm, comfortable quilt when I have to fight the cats for it. Cloe loves to sit and sleep on my sewing table and will sit directly on whatever I happen to be working on at the moment. Quilts are, of course, her favorite. This is the feedsack quilt top I bought at the Roots Flea Market. I put flannel on the back for maximum warmth and cotton batting in the center. I ended up quilting it diagonally to catch as many seams as possible to keep the quilt from fraying over the years. I've already used it quite a bit as the days have been chilly and damp. You can see that Gizzmo agrees that it is a good place to sleep!
