Still Life with Oscar

stilllife-with-oscar

Oscar, who happens to be my favorite kitty, is perched above on his chair in my his house.  He also loves to lay across my chest while I am trying to write on my computer, too.

The world globe was a Christmas present to my husband to place in his office/library.  However, I  stole borrowed it because it looks perfect in the great room.

The “Cabbage Rose” pattern quilt is hanging behind Oscar.  This was actually the very first quilt I quilted when I purchased my longarm many years ago.  It allows me to see how far I have become in both my quilting style and technique.

Do any of you hang a first quilted quilt in your home, too?

Mini Artist Profile: By the way, I forgot to mention that the quilt that Doug pieced  recently that I quilted was a pattern by my friend, Jerry Fujimoto.  You all might remember this quilt by Jerry that I quilted a few months ago:

I received a phone call from Jerry, saying how much he loved the quilting on Doug’s quilt, plus saying he was planning to send the quilt above to several shows this year.  I believe he said it will be first shown at the Denver Quilt Fest in April.

I have been encouraging Jerry to get his website up so you can see his patterns.  I have one of them I can’t wait to piece, too.   I have a feeling Jerry and I will collaborate on some more stuff in the future!

Jerry has also purchased an A1 longarm, so I expect great quilting from him in the future!

  1. I love your kitty — I miss having a cat. The first quilt I ever pieced was six inch squares of different blues going diagonal across the quilt. My niece has it but I’ve promised her a much better quilt in the future.
