Pets on Quilts Show - Lori Olson Schmidt

This cute cat theme quilt was submitted by Lori Olson Schmidt.
Lori submitted this entry via Facebook, with the following insight:




















This is a Buggy Barn pattern. I used rick rack for the whiskers and buttons for the eyes. I used this to try out different stitches when I quilted it. Fun!



Go directly to the show to view more quilts. 

I've extended the deadline out for non-bloggers to submit entries to me, as I haven't found it to be as much work as I had thought (consolidating them with the other entries).  Thus, the new deadline for non-bloggers to enter is Friday, 8/13 midnight!  Bloggers will continue to be able to enter thru August 21st, but as a special post will be made this Saturday, to open up voting for Viewers Choice, there is clearly an advantage of getting your entry in sooner than later!

 To see the list of prizes click here.  Note, as of 8/12 there are still a few more prizes that I need to add to this list.
