Friday Cat Blogging - 5 April 2013

| Fri Apr. 5, 2013 3:13 PM EDT

Today we have an aerial view of Domino. She's lounging on the very first quilt Marian made, a 1985 crib quilt based on a pattern called Snowball, by Marsha McCloskey.

It also demonstrates one of the great things about quiltblogging: it's really easy. Basically, you just put a quilt somewhere, twiddle your fingers for a minute or two, and suddenly a cat appears. It's like magic. I put this one on the floor just below our second-story hallway, so all I had to do was go upstairs, point the camera downward, and then make stupid noises to get Domino to look up at the camera. Eventually it worked.
