Pets on Quilts Entry

SewCalGal is having a online Pets on Quilts show
...and here's my entry.


Meet Lisander, our Main Coone, laying on the hearth atop my Dutchman's Puzzle quilt.  The quilt was made from batik scraps I had laying around. 

Lisander can usually be found laying on his cat tree but on this particular day I was lucky enough to have the camera laying about and find him on the hearth.  You wouldn't know it from the picture but this guy weighs in at 22 pounds.

You and Lisander have just given me an idea for how to use up a load of scraps I found yesterday. Thanks for a lovely picture.

Lisander just looks like he is in charge. Too cute!

What a beautiful cat! That fur looks so plush and soft. Obviously the quilt has the kitty seal of approval! What higher praise could there be??

I love the quilt lines in contrast to the brick lines of the hearth. Lisander? 22 lbs? Nope, I'm not going to mess with him...nope not me :)
