Default Minkee quilt finished!

This poor quilt was bought as a kit from my LQS, sat in the "to be done" pile for about a year, then once started, sat in the "to be finished pile" for another year. It taught me two things: I don't like minkee. I'm not fond of flying geese blocks, either, as my other "to be finished" quilt is also full of them.
I am so thankful to have it done. The cats are FMQ and no two are alike as that was a serious challenge as well.
It feels fabulous to snuggle under, and the cats LOVE it!
Thanks for sharing with me.
Pattern is Adventurous from Planted Seed Designs

May not have been a lot of fun to do, but it sure looks cozy and inviting! The fabrics are great! Nice work!

All I can say is "Wow, how brave to make a full Minkee quilt". I find it very hard to work with. You did a great job, love the colors and the quilting.

That's really nice, so cosy looking. And I'm sure your inspector agrees
