We’re back to quiltblogging this week. Unfortunately, Marian is gone and I forgot to ask for deets about the quilt. So I’m just going to say that it’s….um, a patchwork quilt. It kinda reminds me of this. In other cat news, my sister draws my attention to a cat running for mayor in the Mexican city of Xalapa. His slogan: “Tired of voting for rats? Vote for a cat.” The head of Veracruz’s electoral institute is not amused. “It is important to vote for the registered candidates,” she implores. “Please.” However, since Xalapa’s cat looks a lot like Inkblot, I think he’s well qualified. Vota por un gato!
UPDATE: OK, I have the scoop. This a Charm Square Quilt. Apparently, 5-inch squares of fabric are called “charm squares,” and this quilt was made from a package of charm squares. So there you have it.
