My Quilt Police & BC BOM Top finished

I have to laugh every time I see pictures of all the cats that spend time in the quilting studios. We are owned by a cat, he's 16 years old & sometimes playful, sometimes cranky & he's usually asleep on the guestroom bed. But I have 3 very discriminating quilt police. They check out everything I do. They will test drive any quilt left to low & they love to sleep behind rolling chairs & under the ironing board! To bad the smallest is 105 lbs. & they take up all available floor space & leave fur behind!! But the love me & think they have to watch me at all times. You should hear all the grumbling when I decide to change rooms after they've gotten comfortable!

And Drum roll.....
I finished to Block Central 2008 BOM " Somewhere in Time" I changed to setting , adding a center Medallion - a 36" Carpenters Wheel to make it King size (102"). What do you think? I'm pretty happy with it. Now I just have to find the backing flannel & bought last year & get it off to my quilter!

If you've ever wanted to try a Carpenter's Wheel or any star with Y seams & felt intimidated by it, try this book by Sharyn Squier Craig. To bad I had my block 1/2 finished before I remembered I had it..

Besides supervising, I'm sure the cat and dogs are great company for you too while you're sewing. Your BOM quilt is really gorgeous! I like sampler quilts alot and want to finish one of mine this year too. I noticed you signed up for the OneProjectAMonth Challenge, way to go! Little extra motivation to get those UFO's done!
