    Aren't kitties wonderful. I use to have to put my pincushion in a drawer as my kitties would pull the pins out and drop them all over the floor.

    I like your quilt, too. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Love the quilt and the cats are adorable. And as much as I love cats, I can't be around them, I am severely allergic to them.

    PrettyKitty:
    I just noticed what you are hanging this gorgeous quilt on. Two skirt or trouser hangers! What a great idea. I have a ton of those hangers and now I know what their best use will be! I'm always pinning things to the drapes, clothes pinning quilts to boxes, etc. Now I'll just hang them on the hangers! Thank you.

    Thank so much for all the lovely comments, I am so chuffed with it and glad you all like it too. Thanks so much for all the advice, tips, encouragement you have all given me.

    Here's a pic of Stu & Gill and baby Lottie in the church just after the Baptism. My brother took pics of them opening the quilt at the party afterwards, (they LOVED it), I will post them when he emails them to me. Gill said that Lottie loves bright colours and shapes, so the fabric and pattern is perfect for her. Everyone was SO impressed and asked me what classes I had taken to learn how to make it. I said "no classes, but I have some great friends who I have learnt from and they give me advice!"

    The Baptism was lovely, brought a tear to my eye, and Gill's parents hosted a party afterwards at their house, it was a sunny day and we all had a lovely time, some nice food, a yummy cake and some champagne!

    That's a bummer, Henry. I love cats too but my hubby and sons are severely allergic. I want a kitty so bad. :cry:

    Your quilt was a huge hit--you can tell by the big smiles :D The baby is precious too-thanks for sharing this story with us. It makes a quilt so much more personal when you know more about it.

    Absolutely great work! I am certain the parents will enjoy your gift - as will the baby. I agree with jbsstrawberry - the baby is pretty too.

    I am a little worried about your kitties though - they seemed to love it too. Have you started a new project for them? Or at least for their approval?

    Your quilt is beautiful, and judging by the looks on the parents' faces, you've scored a bull's eye! Well done! That's the kind of reaction we always hope for when we make a quilt for someone!

    THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for the wonderful comments once again. This quilt really gave me confidence, I didn't think I could get it done in time, and was pleased with how it came out too.

    And Rein, yes, the kitties miss it (I miss it too, keep looking at the pics of it,lol), but I just started another baby quilt tonight, they have already inspected the blocks I have done, they approve so far! And don't worry, I won't bug you all with day by day updates on it! This one is for another friends baby who turns 1 year old at the end of November, so I will be taking my time on this one!
