Morpheus' Quilt Finished


The quilt top was finished back in September 2009.  My best beloved cat Morpheus helped me make it in this post.   A while after Morph passed away last September, I gave it to my local long-arm quilter to quilt the top.  I had her add Morpheus' name and dates to the bottom border.   

Border reads:  Morpheus J. ____ August 1994 -- 4 September 2011

scrappy back

It took a long time to sew the binding.  Maybe because it made me so sad.  I miss my beloved cat Morpheus every day.  And I love that I have a memorial quilt to wrap up in.

What a great idea to have Morph stitched into the quilt. It is beautiful and someday you will be able to snuggle under it-perhaps in October!!
