My Charity Quilt for May

I finished a charity quilt for this month.  It feels great to have finished something.  And I think it's a hit because both Mimi and Oscar immediately wanted to hop on it when I put it over a chair in order to photograph it. 

This quilt is going to Quilts from the Heart at our Guild.  They provided the fabrics and batting and all I had to do was sew it, sandwich it and quilt it.  I love these colours.  They remind me of the violets growing in my garden and represented in my present header.

My phone rang as I was taking a photo, so I went to answer it and when I came back this big furry monster was sitting right in the middle of the quilt.  And, he refused to get off!  So now I am donating a charity quilt covered in cat fur.  Oh, well, why should this one be different.  Everything that comes from my house is covered in cat fur.

Thanks to all who came to visit my blog last weekend and a special thanks to those who signed up as followers.  I am so grateful to Barb and Vicki and everyone else who posted about my blog dilemma.  Here is a photo of Mimi that I took yesterday.  She was enjoying the sunshine that we have been getting lately.  The forsythia is blooming and the magnolia trees are just awesome!  A few other flowering trees are slowly beginning to add colour to my world.  Even my peach tree is starting to bloom.  It has taken a long time, but I think our winter just may be over!
