    Love and prayers to you both. She will love the quilt and the fact that you made it and put your whole heart into it .
    Isn't it wonderful that quilting can be such therapy especially in a time of sadness.

    Love the design of your quilt. Fans and dresdens are a favorite. The cats make it wonderfully unique. Prayers for all.

    It didn't show up on the pictures, and I'm sort of photgraph-challenged, but the black border is kitty paw prints, and the centers of the Dresdens are also a kitty print fabric. The sillouette of the cat looks exactly like her cat. I have a ton of top stitching and satin stitching on this quilt, but it was fun to make.

    Thank you all for your compliments... Rebecca

    What a striking quilt-are the cats silouhetted in red as well? God bless you and give your sister the peace in her heart and soul on this final journey. As a nurse of 30 years I have had to witness many journeys and peace is the ultimate prayer, mine for her and you and yours.

    This quilt is super fantastic. I love the cat and the Dresden pattern done in my favorite colors. While the idea must be original to you I am seriously thinking of incorporating it into a quilt just for myself except my cat will be white and the plates black and white prints. Lung cancer wiped out my whole family except for my youngest brother so I know what you are going through. My prayers go with you and yours.

    What a beautiful quilt and I know your sister and hopefully her cat will love it! I will keep you, your sister and the entire family in my prayers. Hey... I'm a Kentucky girl also... looks like you are a northern Ky girl. I am just 8 miles south from Hodgenville in a little town of Magnolia. Give your sister a hug from me and maybe a nod to the cat. God Bless You All.

    Losing ones sister is a hard, sad thing to experience. My sympathies and a hug or two are with you, and her, as you transition through this phase of life.

    I really like the pattern you came up with, I like dresdens too. This should come in handy while your sister is going through her treatments. I'll keep her in my prayers. I understand what you're going through. I lost my only sister in 2004 to colon cancer. It can be a very trying time, enjoy every minute you have with her.

    Your sisters quilt is just gorgeous..... I'm sure she'll feel wrapped in love. I wish her peace.
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!
