    I was going through a bin last night and came across this top. I know that I made it. I recognize the fabrics. I even know approximately WHEN I made it (I was living in Arizona). But I'll be darned if I can remember sewing a single stitch of it. Kwhite said I must have been awful drunk to have forgotten it! LOL. But not only do I not drink, the seams are too straight for me to have been even tipsy! :P

    I guess I decided that I didn't like it after it was done, and then put it away and forgot all about it!! It's all cat fabric. I call it Cats in the Attic.

    It is a really cute quilt! Lova all the cat fabrics. I have one of those on my bucket list. I have had some tops in the aging area of my stash room for waaay too long! I run across them occassionally, and put them back because I am not ready to work on them! One of these days, I will actually get the RIGHT fabric to finish them. :?

    Well, I remember that the cats were a charm square pack. And I recognize the other fabric, but I swear I don't remember cutting or sewing a single stitch. I guess I didn't like it any better then, so I blanked it completely out!

    Well, can't tell you when you made this, but I have used this fabric in a couple colors in quilts....but I forgot when and what quilts I used the fabrics in.

    That's a cute quilt. I can't believe you forgot it. Are you going to finish it now.

    Thanks LH (and everyone). I doubt if I'll finish it, since I still don't like it. I like the idea, but for some reason I am saying to myself "What the heck were you thinking using those fabrics for the windows". I love the paisley fabric, but it just doesn't lend itself to the scrappy type of cat fabric.

    In my defense, I am NOT a scrappy type, so that's probably what I don't like--the scrappy cats. Oh well, it's a lesson to me not to do scrappy, 'cause I'll just throw it in a closet and completely forget about it.

    Nice job! I know what you mean about forgetting.

    I made my grandson's (2) a quilt about 3 years ago and was going to double side it with the same design but then decided not to use them as backs. Well, 3 years later I found them!

    So now I am going to make finish them and give them to charity.

    I did however finish theirs 3 years ago. :D

    Hummmm....I can barely remember the ones I have finished, let alone anything unfinished. I know I have a couple around somewhere, but not sure what they look like any more!!! I like this one, but then again I am a cat person through and through!!

    I think it should be finished and given away- I am sure someone would appreciate it. I think it looks great.

    Hey gaigai!! Since furbabies are so close to your heart, maybe you could finish it and donate it to an animal shelter to raffle! I predict it'd bring in a LOT.

    That's a good idea, barnbum! I'm not sure how much it would bring in, but it would go to a worthy cause for sure. Thank you!
