About That Quilt...

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim!  Hey, remember that quilt Dave showed you the other day?  Right!  The one with the cool cat fabric in it!  Isn't that great!?!  Reminds me of my friend Callie Co Kitty.  Dave thought it over and let Mom go ahead and put that block in the quilt - but said the quilt should be for me!  Wowzers, Dave!  Thanks!  (I hope Mom buys into that!)

Anyway... I found another block with the kit-cat fabric in it (on the floor, oddly enough ... DAVE!) ...

"Kitty Cat!"

...and told Mom to go ahead and put it back up on the design wall!

"Knock yourself out, Mom!  No, really.  Dave said it would be OK!"

Oh! Before I forget! See the long wall-hanging behind me? Our sweet friends Sadie, Isabella and Angel asked about that. Yes, it's little hearts with pix of our dear sisters Stormy and Amber - and me and Dave. Here's a better look:


Mom made it back in 2002! Above it is a star bearing a pic of our great sisters Jesse and Lucky. Thanks for asking about it!

Anyway, since Dave was busy ...


...I decided to have Mom add a few more fabrics to the quilt. Here's one:


And since Dave put (click here) a certain fabric in, I thought this would be appropriate:


Ha roo roo roo!

Here's a look at what we've got so far:


Not bad for just grabbing out of the scrap basket!

Oh... and Dave? Don't worry! He's cool with this whole thing!


Besides, our Auntie Laura sent him Mom some new fabric, and he's all over that!

"There are NO CATS on this fabric.  I'm Dave ... and I approve of these fabric packs!"

Gotta keep peace in the family, right?

Play bows,


  1. haha - good one Zim!! Get your way AND get a quilt. :)

  2. I think it is most appropriate to let Zim have that quilt. I am pretty sure there are plenty of kit kats sprinkled throughout it. Now Dave will just have to get Mom to make him one out of those new fabrics. Be careful Dave, it looks like Zim is trying to hone in on your duties as GDFTCB.

    Much love,

    Cindy & Nina

  3. Your mommy is SO talented! LOVE her work! I am certain your help is appreciated also! Found more quilt sightings....you are really inspiring Beth to quilt faster than she usually does....she is really slow....but that's okay!

  4. Nice job of lending helping paws.

  5. It appears there are hidden cats everywhere! Actually, those cats look good on the quilt. That is a huge quilt for you Zim. Perhaps you and Dave and share it.

  6. Loved the quilt with Stormy and Amber - made us feel a little tearful.....but not in a bad way. That is a very special quilt.

    About the poker, I hear Everest is meeting a potential forever family in Topeka. We should all meet up at his new house sometime and play. =)

    Lots of love,


  9. Aww love that wall hanging.
    That new quilt is looking awesome!

  10. I think it looks really great. Good job, Zim! It's good that you and Dave have an understanding about the feline fabric.


  11. What a khool khat khwilt! (ha-roo, we woo'd that in Khyraese!) Your mom has such furry talented paws! (Good luck, Zim, hope it all works out for woo!)

  12. Zim, you're very sweet to add kitties to the quilt! We really like the quilt with your sisters Ammy and Stormy too! It's very special as are you two boys!

  13. Ah, the disappearing art of compromise! Good to see how well it still works. Maybe we'll send your post to every member of Congress :) Enjoy your quilt, Zim.

  15. I totally approve of your decisions Zimmie!


  16. You know I like ya Zim brother but I have to side with Dave on this one. But at least you get a quilt out of it. It is very nice of Dave to offer that.
    MOM loves the ones hanging on the wall.

  18. It is an honor to be able to see the quilt honoring your siblings. That has to be most comforting piece of work and your mom is to be congratulated, Thanks so much for sharing. We love all of you.

  19. mol! Zim, you sure are a sly pup! We're glad you convinced Dave to reinstate the kitty fabrics :) We hope you'll get the quilt - it sure looks pawsome!
