It’s 2013, and that means the start of our cats and quilts series. But I think this is going to be harder than I thought. It’s no problem to toss out a quilt and wait for Domino to curl up on it, but the problem is that this is pretty much all she does. So that means a lot of pictures of a snoozing cat. I have a feeling I need to think through this whole project a little more carefully to see how I can mix things up a bit more.

In any case, here are the deets on the quilt. It’s a wedding ring quilt made in 1997 out of reproduction 1930s fabrics. It’s machine pieced and hand quilted, and 100% lead free.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
