Good morning Blogville!!!! Sable and Snickers here! As we are the newest members of the Dachsies With Moxie, albeit fosters from Dachshund Rescue of North America (DRNA), we have been chosen to introduce this year's entries for WHN!
In this category, Cat themed quilts, WHN is entering the place mat that she made for Archie of My Three Moggies fame, AND the place mat made for Coccolino, our favorite pig. While Coccolino is not a cat, he lives with two cats- Lacci and Pizzico, and so his place mat is being shown here. Archie lives in the UK, and his mom has already ordered matching place mats for Archie's brothers!!!!!!
As you can see, WHN (What's Her Name) prefers to use batiks for placemats- they have a tighter weave and while that make them more difficult to quilt, the density of their weave and weft threads also make them sturdier for daily use. Archie's mom won the placemat from one of Blogville's auctions held to raise funds for veterinary care and Coccolino's mom Katie also won hers from a different Blogville auction. (Did you know that Coccolino sells the best pet beds around and that he closely supervises his mom in their construction? We have two, and WHN has ordered four more of these beds for us!)
Now we are headed off to leave comments on the other blog entrants- please check out all of the other entrants at Lily Pad Quilting and leave comments- there are prizes galore this year again , and we want everyone to enjoy the talents on display!
