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.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
