    thanks very much.

    this is the way i did my braids.
    i didn't have EQ at the time, so this was easier than trying to figure out how to cut precise and properly shaped pieces.

    Adorable. love the kitties, great quilting
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thank you so much for the tut about the french braid portion of the quilt. Would it be too much to ask to get the pattern for the kitties? I've been looking for something to make up for the silent auction that the rescue I volunteer with has and this would be perfect. I'm assuming that the cats were appliqued onto the piece of fabric connected to the "fence" portion. Thank you for any help you can give me.

    I love it! It looks just like kitties sitting on a balcony railing. Nice job!
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    Glad I decided to ck out the Quilt of the Week! Love it, Patrice, Congratulations! And thanks for the pdf on the braids too! I read through from the beginning but can't remember if you gave the size or not? I wish the pic would enlarge....I can right click on it and then on View Image and get a bit of enlargement but with it were more. The fence design is really neat! and love the dark fabrics--the small squares are floral, aren't they? Is the sashing and border fabric floral or small dots? It sure is a winner!!

    the cats are pieced.

    a simpler cat block can be found here:
    http://quilting.about.com/od/blockof.../cat_quilt.htm

    if you want to challenge yourself to curved piecing, you are welcome to use my pattern.
    remember to set page scaling, in adobe reader, to "none" before you print it.
    it should finish to 12".

    Great quilt. I'd love to see it also in autumn colors and I love doing French braid runners so it might go on my list of somdays.

    i didn't do the butterflies using FMQ. i pinned the printed pattern onto the panel and stitched around it the hard way. in another year and a half i might have the courage to try FMQ butterflies. :lol:

    it's a rectangle. cross my heart. :lol:
    Absolutely gorgeous! Love kitties. Beautiful stitching and colors.
