    I think I read in an applique book about highlighting eyes with a white permanent marker - like putting a little arc or sparkle in the eyes. Not much, just enough to make them come alive. I've never done this, however,and can't remember what book I read it in, so it could have been in a quilting dream.

    Those are cute kitties :) Have you thought about maybe making a scrappy border with the coordinating fabrics of the kitties? That might give it that certain something it needs.

    They look so sad to me. Maybe turn up the mouth a little?

    They are really cute! I love their expressions. They crack me up! Like, did you find that hair ball I left in your underwear drawer? Hack, hack... I wouldn't change them at all. Those cats have character!

    You need to add a little mousie in your border & then a couple stitches onto their mouths to make them smile at the thought of catching it....

    I think they are fine the way they are because they are primitive (which I LOVE). I even like the idea of whatver is the background you have in the pic being the sashing??? Some white hightlights in the eyes is not a bad idea... (Not that the other ideas are bad - not by a long shot!!) I like them as they are...

    I think each kitty needs a different colored frame around it. Then from there you can add your sashings and maybe keystone blocks? Or just some pieced mixed blocks as the sashings?

    Since you do these blocks to sell as kits, the idea of coordinated sashing strips might be pretty good. You could cut several sets of colors and then display possibilities with the blocks. As customers click on a block set one of those "you might also like" pictures could come up.

    Thanks y'all! I considered putting them on black blocks. Do you guys do much with black?

    Cat hair on solid black.. imagine how much that would show up. How about a tea colored fabric or med. ivory since you are making a more primative style? Or if your set is six, five cats one mouse (or offer that as an option?) six cats or five and one mouse and make the mouse look worried. No smiles. They look like kitty ornies. . Put a crown on the mouse :) or bird. That would be cute. button eyes? ah heck they are fine the way they are. Messing with a good thing and all that.

    I like them.
    I agree with the idea of using coordinating sashing strips.
