    I wasn't going to post until I was done, Here is the kitty quilt I am making to donate to a special kitty at the humane society (it's also being entered in Joann's Craft for A Cause contest). This is just the top, so far 16 3/4" square. I think I want to add another wider border (same fabric as the sashing) and doing a flange then the binding. The flange would be the light cream color seen in the blocks. The binding is going to be the same as the first border and I haven't decided on the backing yet. Any thoughts?

    What a neat quilt. I like the paw print for the backing.

    It's beautiful, and I love your idea for the rest of the border. Would like to see the paw print for the backing if you have enough.

    That is really cute. I love all the fabrics. Do you have enough of the orange for the backing? You did a great job on it.

    Very cute! I have a lot of the same fabric - just didn't have any idea what to make.

    How cute! Looks like your squares are about 4 inches, right? That's a size I like to work with, too. G
