    I never heard from Barbara M ... whichever Barbar she may be. Sooooo I decided to be greedy and "steal" this pick for myself. :mrgreen:

    thought it was time for something with a bit of whimsy :-)

    Nice choice Patrice :thumbup: , just thinking, how I can work this one in with all my blues and purples. Mmmmm got an idea, I've seen something somewhere done with these (who knows where :lol: ) would have to reduce cat to 4', wonder if that's do-able. Gonna give it a go and see, will be a while tho, bit of work in it :wink:

    I have a quilt planned in my head to make for a friend that helped us out when we first got here to Guam. She has 2 cats that are her kids, she has no kids of her own, except the furry ones. Thought a cat quilt would be cute for her.
    Now, gotta figure out WHEN I'm going to do it.
    Hmmm....I think I have your addy. I gots some cat fabric I can share with you. :)

    Awe, Terri :) That's so nice of you! Just if you're sure you have enough for your friends kitty quilt, awe :) :( :) Hey, my friend that lost her cat...she's from my hd forum, she's in early stages of hd, 58 and single, and so her cat was her only companion, and went missing a couple of weeks ago, and she loved her cat so much...so when i saw the kitty block, i suddenly realized a kitty quilt would make her feel real special...she just recently had to retire from her job because of hd, and so i just realized this would be real nice. Cathy sent me a kitty cat fat quarter a couple weeks ago, real purrrrty, and i was wondering what i would do with cat fabric lol now i know :)

    Hello, buddysmimi here. Love this block, but I think I am missing something. Can't seem to find the directions. Where do I need to look please? The tutorials are wonderful. Very well done. Thanks for the help. Have a great day.

    This is different than the cat pattern I have floating around somewhere
    the one I have is tall cats.
    I am sending this one to a sister who makes a lot of lap quilts
    this is a nice pattern to use up scraps :thumbup: instead of just making the cats all the same color.
    oops

    Ok, I'm a dummy. Found the link. Braindead is what I am. Love the block, am going to have to make one for sure. Am much better with my machine than I am with the computer, for sure.

    Thanks, don't feel bad, just quite frustrated sometimes that the "old" brain refuses to grasp the electronic things like it would have say 20 years ago is all. :?
