Reader Challenge: Favorite Things

Here’s another lovely quilt from the “Favorite Things” Reader Challenge, which appears in the February/March 2015 issue of Quilting Arts.


Carol Kolf • Sheridan, Wyoming

“My kitties are one of my favorite things.  This is Ricky.  He is always ‘helping’ me in my sewing room.  Sometimes he likes to rest his head inside the opening of my sewing machine.  Maybe he is checking my stitches!

Ricky found us one night.  He must have known we were needing a new pet since we had lost our dogs a few years earlier, and we were pet-less.  He was going to be an outdoor-only cat, but he must not have understood our plan.  He often sleeps with us along with Lucy who found us a few years later.  I used a favorite photo as a starting point for one of my favorite things – Ricky.”
