    Good grief is this thing ugly! LOL I think it's hideous and very creepy but my 4 year old daughter was obsessed with this thing when she saw it on the cover of my grandmother's quilting magazine that I inherited.

    I finally gave in and made it this afternoon. I'm laughing because it's just so stinkin' ugly and creepy!! LOL

    I used the first bunch of scraps I laid my hands on in my scrap bag. Then I pulled out one of my 6 year old son's fleece baby blankets and cut it up for the backing. No batting.

    On the plus side, it's all recycled - even the button eyes and thread came from other projects. And.. I was able to use my grandmother's quilt design templates to make the hearts.

    But I can't stop laughing at how creepy it is! LOL

    What a great mom that you made your daughter a creepy cat (rofl). She will love it and that is all that matters; look at those hearts you put in it; came from your heart. Creepy, but made with love!!!

    I can't stop laughing!! I put it on her bed so she'd see it when she wakes up, but now I'm wondering if it's going to scare her! LOL

    I must not see it how everyone else does. I don't see creepy at all. All I see is a block with some ears and eyes at the top. :) It's kinda cute!

    LOL. It is kinda creepy and soooo funny but if she loves it that is all that matters.

    I can't believe I just said for all to see that someone's quilt was creepy and funny.................

    There were other ears to make other animals like bunnies and puppies and sheep. I think the bunny was cute. But something about this cat weirds me out! Maybe it's the colors and the eyes but no mouth.

    Bailey - totally okay to call out the creepy! LOL

    PamQuilts - I'm glad you think it's cute :) I think it has the potential to be cute. Maybe a mouth would help?

    Maybe I'll try a bunny next and make it larger. This is only 12" so it isn't much of a blanket.
