Pets On Quilts Show

Welcome to the Pets on Quilts Show Hosted by SewCalGal .
Here are the Maine Coons who just have to be involved. When they get involved I have to move carefully those paws are BIG. They came to us after being terrorized by 3 dogs. They are big beautiful characters who chat and love laps and to be involved in everything we do.




Bess on a quilt top trying it out for size.




If she had a try I have to help too mum. You missed this bit if the quilting.....




 Yes it's comfortable, thanks.




Bess also overseas the ironing, although paws must stay away from the iron.
 This runner is pretty and suits me mum. But it needs to be a little longer, add more squares like these ones mum.
I love the fur babies and they love being involved and around their people. So I will have many more years of quilts and cats to come.

What gorgeous kitties. I used to have a Maine Coon cat. He too was gorgeous.

Very good looking coons. Sorry they were terrorized by dogs, but very happy they are in your loving home. And they do look like good helpers. I also agree with them that you need to make more of those beautiful blocks.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Aren't they all helpful, especially the one on the ironing board helping you with that.

They are beautiful! Are coon cats supposed to be the biggest breed of cats? So sorry to hear they were terrorized by dogs, and glad to see they are safe with you!

I have never heard of a "coon" cat until now so I learned something new today!

I grew up in Northwest Alabama and all hunters had coon dogs. They even have a Coon Dog cemetery and have a festival there every year to honor the hunting dogs that have gone on before.
