And in this photo our cat, Preki, was kind enough to pose with it so that you could see the backing she chose:
Preki is the cat that hasn't been eating much. We got some kitten chow for her and she does pick at that. She has energy, is taking good care of her fur, and still has her old spunk. She just barely eats.
But back to the quilt. Violet has already said that if they offer quilt class again next summer she wants to go and do another one. In the meantime, she has a few projects planned out, but hasn't started yet. She did spend 25 hours working on the quilt for a total of 61 hours of class time this summer (I'm giving her a full credit of sewing on her 8th grade transcript. By the time you add in travel time to the offsite class, which I fully believe public schools would do, time spent purchasing her material and planning other projects, she'll have a full credit earned). I can see where maybe she's ready for a break from it.
