    "Cats and Confetti in My Garden" AKA Caterwauling

    I found this panel on "Favorite Fabrics" web site after looking high and low for it! Never satisfied with just using a panel as is, I cut it apart and started adding 2.5" squares. I had some pretty flower fabric that seemed to go along with the cats nicely so into the quilt it went. And so the quilt grew. It's 80"X80" and is complete! I had lots of help with Miss Gracie. I first introduced Gracie when she was 3 months old. She is almost 7 months old now and such help! You have no idea!!!

    You all are so generous posting photos of your quilts I feel I must share also. I have received so many ideas on how to quilt a project or put one together. Thank you one and all for sharing your beauties.

    I've not posted since the board reinvented itself so wish me luck. Here I go!

    Such a lovely quilt and properly anointed with furbaby hair!!!!!!!
    Cats and quilters seem to go together so well. I have to be sure the receivers of my quilts are NOT allergic to cats.

    That is so adorable! So cheerful and whimsical.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I have this panel. In fact quilted it as a piece for a friend and then bought another for myself that I have not used yet. I like what you did by cutting it apart. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.
