    Thanks CindyBee & Chele!! :D I was leary when I first tried the cat pattern, I think because there was so many directions to it! But after making one or two, they really were pretty easy.
    And Chele, too bad we didn't have an animal phychologist on here, to finally explain why the brattlys always have to be on the material! Staking their claim? lol!!! :D

    Thank you Beachlady! :-) I think the autumn leaves was also a Debbie Mumm pattern. I'd like to make it again too, using better colors next time!

    Diana,

    Nobody is perfect. I wouldn't take the border apart. All three quilts are charming. I have a cat who would love to meet yours. He also likes to participate in all of my quilting and sewing.

    Thanks Mpspeedy & Gcathie!! :D The leaves one is done, the cat just a top. I'm a 'quilt in the ditch' quilter, no hand quilting.

    Wow, I can't believe this. I have only made a few quilts, all wall hangings.
    MY first was the cat quilt, then I went out and bought fabric for the Leaf quilt, which I have yet to make, and now I am in the middle of a friendship star quilt, similar to yours. Boy do we have the same taste in choosing designs to quilt.

    Keep up the good work. They are lovely.

    Those are lovely Diana...I wouldn't worry about the rotated piece in the green quilt.. it's a tradition by many (really old) quilters to add a deliberate mistake if there's not an accidental one. The tradition goes that they do this because they believe that only God can make something perfect, so if they make a "perfect" quilt it is putting themselves on the same level. I've even seen blocks with one piece wrong side out. It used to be a game to find the error in a finished quilt. And I wouldn't worry about the colors in the leaf quilt. Just think of that as a Spring leaf. I've seen series done of one pattern where light colors were used for spring, brighter ones for summer, rusts, browns and golds for fall and black and white for winter.. that's a perfect spring quilt!

    Thank you for looking.

    the cat quilt is adorable. don't take off the border. it's too cute! if the corners bother you (they shouldn't) just open up the corners and continue the colored strips to the ends. or remove some strips and have cornerstones in there. then you can still make it bigger if you want to by adding a solid border(s). honestly those strips coordinate so well and pull it all together.


    edit: mamagus is right. that block in the upper right on the green ribbon quilt has a lower left corner that needs rotating. eeek!
