|Dancer Checks the Comfort Level|
"Dancer, I need you to move so that I can spread out the backing sheet."
|"Hey, what's this? Is Mummy tucking me in?"|
"No, Dancer, I need you off the bed!"
He got off the bed long enough for me to spread the sheet. But, when I went to measure the width of the sheet, he jumped into help with that!
|Helping with the Measuring|
|"Measure from here, Mummy"|
|"I'll just bite off this extra bit!"|
He is such a helpful kitty! With his help, I managed to make a cut, lengthwise, 24 inches from one side edge, and inserted the pieced panel that I had sewn, yesterday and earlier, today:
|The Pieced Panel|
This panel is made up of some extra patches and fabric leftover from sewing the front. It was sewn to widen the sheet in order to make it wide enough to cover the whole back of the quilt. I sewed it off center, intentionally, to add a design element:
