"Pets on Quilts" Quilt Show

When I saw Becky's (The Quilting Booklady) post about SewCalGirl's Pet on Quilts show, I thought I would enter also. Out of the zillions of photos of the cats all over my quilts and trying to decide which of the four cats to show, I chose this photo.
Here is Stella (or Stella Bella or Bella; she answers to any variation), the inspiration for my blog's name. The quilt is Stella's quilt because looks so nice under her and brings out the orange and golds in her coat. It is a big quilt for a petite cat but the quilt is often kept folded up on the end of the bed. A perfect perch for a sweet kitty. Check out the rest of the great pets and quilts at the link below.

She ANSWERS to her name? Cool. Maybe she could talk to my kids. She's beautiful on her quilt.

Gretchen, Bella and the quilt are some of the prettiest combinations of colors. Wow. I claim to like purple and yet am drawn to the brown palette more and more.... another sea change in the works?

This is one gorgeous quilt and a stunning cat :) Great choice for the Pet Quilt Show. Wish I had another Honeyberries in me. Love this quilt!

Love it! Love them both. Love the way Stella is holding her left paw. Up close you can see it's slightly lifted as if she were ready or in process of making biscuits. Love little kitty paws. So cute!

Your Stella is gorgeous. I love the look of the quilt, all in my favourite colours. Thank you for showing them to us.

Oh you are right about the quilt bringing out her colors - not that she needs it because she's beautiful! I love your quilt too!!!

Your Stella Bella is such a beautiful kitty, and the colors in the quilt highlight her fur perfectly :)

(I call my Georgie and Ellie, "Ellie Belly" and "Georgie Porgie", funny how we make silly rhyme names for them....)
