    Kitty Quilt finished!

    Here's is the lap quilt I have made for my sister who adores cats but sadly can't have one as her house mate can't abide them...I hope this quilt makes up for the void in her life!


    I have made this using various bits of panels I picked up from ebay. I SID around the blocks to stabilise it then FMQ meandered mainly, with a bit of 'extra' on the large blocks to emphasise the kitty's a bit more, I wanted them to look more 3D! The backing has little kitty paw prints all over too!

    This is so sweet! You did a fantastic job. Love all those little kitty faces. This should help whenever you sis wants to snuggle with a kitty. If only it would purr.
