What are you most proud of? How Tiggy loves to sleep on his quilt... I will have to make him another one, so I can wash this one! I did 'fussy' cutting for the first time and allowed the fabric to guide me with the overall pattern of the quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't run down your pet and then feel guilted into making a quilt... just make them one:)

Poor Tiggy. So glad to her he is doing better. I like your comment about not being guilted into making them a quilt just do it. They have my while bed to sleep on all day and what do they decide to sleep on? My clothes.

Atleast you allow your pet indoors... my son Steve always teases me that I had to run over poor wee Tiggy before I allowed him in;(

Poor Tiggy my foot! I'm sure that's a pretty smug look on his face LOL... drastic action was obviously called for, you didn't get the hint that he wanted his very own special quilt after the first time you ran him over! He had to wait 17 years??? Goodness me, I'm surprised he hadn't reported you to the authorities ;-) His quilt is his badge of honour.... and a reminder to his family that they should be grateful he has blessed them with another chance... a quilt in the sun would be nice... can you move my plate closer too, please *purr purr* Perhaps a little more padding in the NEXT one too please? Love the quilt, well done!

Haha love your comment and my son Steve will enjoy it too, as Tiggy is his cat. I have made him another quilt and yes I do believe that is a smug look on his little face:)

I love this quilt and also the message that you don't need a reason to treat your pet! I live in an apartment in New York City so my cat Mitzi doesn't get to enjoy the outdoors... sounds like a good reason to make her a quilt of her own - maybe with images of birds and trees! I hope Tiggy is doing all better and enjoys his second quilt just as much as his first!

Ooh yes... Emafish just treat Mitzi to a lovely quilt or two, I really like the idea of trees and birds:) Be sure to post it up to let us all see it. Thanks for the lovely comment:)

Glad Tiggy's getting on okay - but he is a lucky cat to have a quilt all of his own! Incidentally - it IS rather nice! My Rupert is getting more and more envious and I saw him lying down in the drive just now, just behind the car!

Ooh you have to be so careful with cats they seem to want to be as near as possible even though its dangerous, I gues thats why cats have nine lives!!!!! I think Tiggy has just about used his all up! Thanks for the lovely comment:)

Thanks Ranjini, we still miss our wee Tiggy, its amazing how attached you can get to a pet, they really become part of the family.

oh no!! sorry to hear! I am sure he loved his quilt!

Oh Desna- this is the 1st I found you project for Tiggy and i'm so sorry to hear you've lost him. I lost my soul mate of 14 1/2 years a few months ago. I know how hard it can be. Take heart in what a good Mom (and Dad) Tiggy had. He was loved and cared for for all his years. ;-(

Thank you Jean for your kind words... it will be soon coming to a whole year without our lovely wee Tiggy and we still miss him.
