Quilt Design with Rembrandt

If I open the cupboard door to reach office supplies:


If I open the filing cabinet:



And sometimes it's a little hard to think when they're all sitting around staring at me:



And sometimes comparative strangers are visiting for a few hours to sleep off Boot Camp:


But I did manage to get a new pattern done:
This is the second of the Primitive Portraits, called Portrait in Silhouette No.1 (I could do a hundred of these, don't you just love old silhouettes?), also 16x20", again featuring Jo Morton fabrics, with an "applique" quilt on the wall and you notice the curtain is a bit 3-dimensional.

Yepper, those are definitely members of the Cat Club! My two would do the same darn things!!!

Karen said...

Another good design. I would like to see a series that could be put into one quilt.

Sue said...

Your cats are cute!
Yes, I love those silhouette designs.
Very beautiful! You do great work!

Oh my that Rem is a mess!! Ha! Yes they do want just stare at times..I always look and say WHAT?? They just slowly blink and ignore me. Ha!!
LOVE this design!!!Can't wait to see them all!!!
You have some of the best ideas!!
Hope the 'stranger' is doing well in boot camp!

Aw. Aren't they angels when they're sleeping...no matter what the age? (Your Timmy, that is.)

LOVE your new silhouette! Yes. Silhouettes are truly timeless, aren't they!

I too love the new silhouette. But that Rembrandt, what a funny cat!

Clare said...

I know this sounds silly, but if you ever decide that Rembrandt needs a new hole, can I be first in line please.

Clare said...

Sorry - meant home LOL.

Karen said...

Silly cats! Love the new silhouette.

Isn't it funny how they squeeze into the oddest of places!

Aren't you glad Rembrandt is always jumping in to help you? Those other cats just sit around staring at you while YOU and Rembrandt do all the work.

What a cute little quilt! What cute little helpers you have too!

Gretchen said...

Oh that silly Rembrandt! What a busy little helper she is. I agree about the cats seeming like they are everywhere sometimes. I like to get a little revenge sometimes and wake them all up when they are sleeping (hee hee). I love the silhouette! Maybe one of your next ones will feature a silly little cat :)

Sue said...

I LOVR the primitive portraits! Do you have a whole series of them?

hetty said...

Cute cats! Love your Primitive Portrait!

Libby said...

Kitties will keep you on your toes *s* Love the new pattern.

MARCIE said...

Oh that Rembrandt is a riot! And I see what you mean about the staring. Shrinks do that to create an uncomfortable silence, so I've been told, so that you talk more. I bet you talk your head off to those cats! Just a crazy guess!

Love the portrait. Too bad I don't quilt or applique. However, that doesn't stop me from looking!

Whenever I open the dishwasher Zoom climbs to the back and sits down there by the heating element. Do you know how difficult it is to get a cat out of the dishwasher? You'll get no sympathy from me. :)
