    Good grief is this thing ugly! LOL I think it's hideous and very creepy but my 4 year old daughter was obsessed with this thing when she saw it on the cover of my grandmother's quilting magazine that I inherited.

    I finally gave in and made it this afternoon. I'm laughing because it's just so stinkin' ugly and creepy!! LOL

    I used the first bunch of scraps I laid my hands on in my scrap bag. Then I pulled out one of my 6 year old son's fleece baby blankets and cut it up for the backing. No batting.

    On the plus side, it's all recycled - even the button eyes and thread came from other projects. And.. I was able to use my grandmother's quilt design templates to make the hearts.

    But I can't stop laughing at how creepy it is! LOL

    What a great mom that you made your daughter a creepy cat (rofl). She will love it and that is all that matters; look at those hearts you put in it; came from your heart. Creepy, but made with love!!!

    I can't stop laughing!! I put it on her bed so she'd see it when she wakes up, but now I'm wondering if it's going to scare her! LOL

    I must not see it how everyone else does. I don't see creepy at all. All I see is a block with some ears and eyes at the top. :) It's kinda cute!

    LOL. It is kinda creepy and soooo funny but if she loves it that is all that matters.

    I can't believe I just said for all to see that someone's quilt was creepy and funny.................

    There were other ears to make other animals like bunnies and puppies and sheep. I think the bunny was cute. But something about this cat weirds me out! Maybe it's the colors and the eyes but no mouth.

    Bailey - totally okay to call out the creepy! LOL

    PamQuilts - I'm glad you think it's cute :) I think it has the potential to be cute. Maybe a mouth would help?

    Maybe I'll try a bunny next and make it larger. This is only 12" so it isn't much of a blanket.

    I completely agree. I kept looking to see if I was missing something that made it creepy. I'm glad i'm not the only one who thinks it is cute.

    Beauty through the eyes of a child! Make sure you keep it for her, so when she is older she has a good laugh and memory of the creepy cat....

    I think the eyes are what makes it creepy - try different color buttons for the eyes and maybe embroider a mouth for it? I don't think it's creepy at all though.

    I'm not quite sure why she wanted it though - what's she going to do with a 12" cat? lol

    Lol. I kinda see what you mean, but I don't think it's ugly.... I think maybe if the eyes were darker buttons?? and maybe add a nose and some whiskers??

    i think it's a total hoot. not at all creepy.

    unless the eyes follow you around the room.

    or it meows.

    or demands to be fed.

    ;-)

    The verdict is in.... When I tucked the kids into bed tonight, my son asked where his dog blanket was so I have to make one for him now. My daughter said, "Momma... you're the best quilt maker in the whole world." <3

    Normally when folks put up those posts that refer to an ugly quilt I find myself saying, hey that doesn't look so bad. But.... on this one I have to agree. But it is so ugly it is cute, you know that kind of ugly only a mother could love. I love the wonky button eyes.
