The Quilt Layout... With A Little Help From My Friends

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I began to layout my Indian Summer Quilt. But it was not met without a little bit of hilarity and frustration.  Let me explain...


It started off pretty good.  The layout looks great, but what is this???


An uninterested observer?  


I think not...  I believe he is contemplating when to make his "design move".


That didn't take long. This is a good spot to begin the inspection.  But wait, he calls in his partner.  He must need back up.


Yup, this design isn't going to work well.  


This is much better!

Thank you to all on Facebook that left all the great comments on these photos yesterday.  You guys are the best and all comedians in the making!!

The pattern for this quilt (not the one with the cat's layout) can be found here.

Until Next Time...

I am definitely seeing how the new design is going to work much better. What does the designer suggest for the "open spaces?"

It's funny how pets have to help. My lab loves to lay on my quilt tops when I lay them on the floor. The other two dogs know they aren't suppose to do that but Shadow has other plans. Love the "new" layout.

Love your helpers, but love your quilt more. I have a 75lb golden doodle named Hank, so now I use a bed as my design wall. Hank just eats the blocks he doesn't like. Have a great day!

I have two minature dachshunds that try to help me everytime I lay a quilt out on the floor. I can't wait till I have a design WALL!

Cats are just so darn funny! And predictable too - they can't resist a quilt on the floor! Or anywhere else for that matter :*) I've made that quilt - just love it in your colors!

I love your helpers -- they clearly masters of quilt designs!

That is going to be a stunning quilt. I can't wait to see it finished!

Okay, this is totally my cats too. What is it about our fabric they love so much! and then to mess it up. Our cats lay ying/yang like yours too. So funny.

What is the name of this actual block called? I really love it!
