Friday Cat Blogging – 4 January 2013

It’s 2013, and that means the start of our cats and quilts series. But I think this is going to be harder than I thought. It’s no problem to toss out a quilt and wait for Domino to curl up on it, but the problem is that this is pretty much all she does. So that means a lot of pictures of a snoozing cat. I have a feeling I need to think through this whole project a little more carefully to see how I can mix things up a bit more.

In any case, here are the deets on the quilt. It’s a wedding ring quilt made in 1997 out of reproduction 1930s fabrics. It’s machine pieced and hand quilted, and 100% lead free.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
