    I made a quilt for my second granddaughter when she was born, however her mother ( a real piece of work), my ex-DIL, got mad at my son and destroyed the quilt. I just finished her new quilt (she's almost 8). She loves cats, and purple, and blue, and pink, and green, so here's her new quilt. She has a great step-mom now and hopefully she will love this quilt to death! Sorry the close up of the back is kinda blurry and the first label picture is not one of the blocks. If you look closely you can maybe see the quilting--prancing cats, mice, some doggie footprints, and fish skeletons (thanks for the idea Charisma).

    the whole quilt, D4P

    The quilt is wonderful. I'm so glad she has a great step mother along with a great Grandmother. The worst story I heard was a mother, who helped her son and daughter in law move. She wrapped a bleach bottle in a quilt made by her daughter in laws Mother. Needless to say, it was ruined.

    OMG this is soooo cute. I LOVE your FMQ of the cats and mice and the motif you put in the blocks. The label is just FABOO. Have you given the quilt to Brooklyn yet? Did she squeal with delight? You ain't kidden that your ex DIL was a piece of work. I can't believe she destroyed the quilt. Sick, sick, sick.
