Cats, Bats and Leaves

This week, I’ve been working on three things.  A cat quilt for one sister-in-law and a fall quilt for another.  Then, while browsing Flicker: Fresh Modern Quilts, I came upon this.  Splendid!  My sister and I had bats in our attic bedroom and both absolutely detest them!  Wednesday, I drafted out the pattern with the intent of surprising my sister with a runner.  Wednesday night, I was washing a dish at the kitchen sink and noticed a shadow move over me and then caught a LARGE BLACK flying object to the left.  A BAT!  EEEKK!  I ran for my life and ended up in the basement until my son came home from work and chased it out.  The bat had at least a 12″ wingspan ~~ nearly double the size my sister and I dealt with as girls.  It must have come down the chiminy and I believe it was a one time event.
