Cats on Quilts - Pets on Quilts Show

Image result for moe on vroomans quilts blog

I was amazed at people asking me where Moe was.  Who is Moe?  You never heard of Moe in the Box?









He's one of my furkid helpers who just loves when any scrap box or tote or tub comes out to play - great napping places.

Now my furbabies love all parts of the quilting process and 'cat scan' every bit of it as it progresses.  BUT, they know they cannot touch a quilt once it has been washed, dryed, and lint brush finished!  AND boy I taught them well as I have the worse time getting them to pose for Pets on Quilts.  But Moe - well, let's say he has lapses in his memory...........


This quilt reminds me of Moe.  Black and white is so classic.  Sometimes a sprinkle of color and spark is in his eyes.  Sometimes the straight and narrow like the quilting.


Like the bold splashes - he has his darting moments.  Or the swirling and circles that remind me of how he rolls, squirms, stands on his head to get attention for a pet or scratch.

  
And just as quickly as this quilt started and came to an end, so to does Moe say ' MOM enough'!!!


And that's Moe in a Box - Cats on Quilts catagory.

Please be sure to visit Lilypad Quilting and see all the entries.

Sewingly Yours,

  12. Great photo's of Moe - when my mother died we gave Dad a cat called Mo ( short for Mohake Moses - as he was crossing a road near a river called the Mohake - he was the best - lived till nearly 18) Your quilt is beautiful - so him.

  18. Your black and white quilt looks fantastic, especially with Moe posing there all nice and matchy-matchy.

  19. I swear all cats get the same memos. Fit self in box. Any box. Small ones are the most fun (Bella just tried, and failed, to squeeze herself into a quilt magazine file box, dumped it first, smart girl, but still couldn't fit); be one with all parts of the quilt process (I think I've finally taught Bella a quilt in progress on the longarm is NOT a new bed)...no success with keeping her off washed, lint-brushed quilts unless I hide them in a closet: even then she sometimes finds them. Moe is a beauty of a Tuxedo cat, as is his lookalike quilt. :-)

  21. You picked the perfect quilt for Moe to showcase. Fun post. Hope he got an extra ear scratch for being such a good model.

  22. Oh I just love Moe!!! He was such a sweet guy, posing just long enough for you to get your post - and then off to find what he loves best - boxes! That quilt was the perfect complement for him - bold and striking :*)

  26. Moe matches the quilt so nicely! I see that he is also a big fan of boxes like my black and white cat, too. :)

  27. Cat and quilts and boxes...they all go together. And boxes with quilting scraps...even better. Moe knows what he's doing.

  29. Moe is so funny always in a box. Molly likes to squeeze herself into the boys' football bags (or any bag left on the floor)!
