New quilt on the bed

The other morning I walked into the bedroom after Builder Bob had gotten up and the bed was made but…..the quilt was lying on the floor. (he said it wasn’t put on the bed because he was getting too much help from the kitties….which I can believe). We have a deal that whoever gets up last has to make the bed.

Anyway, I figured it was his way of saying it was time for a “Spring/Summer” quilt.

So my Kaleidoscope quilt is now on the bed and I need to see if I have any extra scraps to make a couple throw pillows.

In the mean time Bella seems to be enjoying the new quilt.

Simon had to join her, it is funny how they always sleep at the end of the bed even when we’re not in it.

  1. I've been behind on my blog reading but I just did a nice catch up on yours and I enjoyed seeing the bright summer quilt and the kitties snoozing at the bottom of the bed. Mine do the same – like they have assigned seats or something…
