Today’s quilt is “Watercolor Garden,” a watercolor design from Pat Maixner Magaret and Donna Ingram Slusser. It is machine pieced, hand quilted, and no fabric was used twice.

Domino was surprisingly cooperative about the whole thing. I just plonked her down on the chair, and she stayed there patiently while I took some pictures. The photo shoot probably would have turned out better if I could have found her an hour earlier, but she’s apparently discovered a brand new hidey hole and I couldn’t figure out where she was. By the time she finally made an appearance, the light coming through the window was a little dim. That’s the catblogging life for you.

In other news, the Daily Mail reports that there is no great stagnation: “A new range of apps lets cats take their own photos, also known as selfies. When the phone is placed on the ground, the screen shows moving dots or ‘bouncing lasers’ for the cat to chase. When the cat hits the laser, its photo is taken.” Soon Domino will be able to do her own catblogging instead of relying on us flighty human shutterbugs.
