Oto the cat and his quilt

March 25, 2012

Remember this little quilt I made for Ayumi, featuring her cat Oto in Japan?

Well, a few months ago I received a great email from her  which contained some photos of Oto and his quilt! She’s recently blogged about him and his reaction to seeing his portrait, so I can now show you just how unimpressed he was with my handiwork! Ha!

Geez Oto, is it really that bad?

What do you think lady?! That looks nothing like me.

She just didn’t get my eyes right *sigh*

Oh man, thanks so much for showing these to me Ayumi! I laugh so hard every time I see them!!

    So utterly cute, you’ve got his image for sure in your pattern Sonya. So very great shots! I love him, he’s so cute and Sargent Major like all at the same time.

    Ayumi!! I’ve been giggling all day over Oto’s super grumpy face, awesome photos! I posted it on the modern quilt guild Facebook page and so many people love him! … And Joe, I might add!
