Our local MQG had the incredible good fortune to have a dinner with Jacquie Gering several months ago.  She's an amazing quilter and so nice in person! After an extended conversation about everyone's pet's one quilter asked Jacquie if her dog, Sideways, had ever made it into a quilt?

"Well," Jacquie replied, "he's in every quilt I make."

Ah, yes. The hair issue. Try as you might, it's hard to keep a little extra fluff from sneaking into the batting.

"You mean I'm not supposed to roll around on this?"

Full disclosure: I do try very hard to keep cat hair out of the quilts and everything gets washed thoroughly before delivery.  You win some you lose some.


  1. Ahhh yes, They do love our quilts!

  2. I have found that the rubber grips on my quilting gloves are very good for removing cat hair while I'm quilting. (I have seven cats)

  3. Theoretically, Angel is not allowed in the quilt room. The actual data is not supporting the theory.
