Cats Cats Cats... its now a complete top!!

My little cat quilt is coming right along!  This is a quilt that a client asked me to make, based on the colors of her front room. 

I had a lot of fun choosing fabrics with her, and imagining what the cats would look like.  We both loved the way the Batik fabrics made such a difference in each cat.

As a matter of fact, some of the colors in the batiks changed so much in just one piece of fabric, that I could get 2 different cats out of it, and you couldn’t tell it was the same piece!

Here is my "Cats Cats Cats" in progress:

AS I made them, they were fun to start placing on the wall - and envision where I was going with it!

And all of my "Cats"  up on the wall. They place together pretty nicely. My cats in real life, try to trip me on a regular basis - they make me look clumsy!

I had some Batik Strips left over,

and so.... what any good quilter does... ( Okay you can laugh now, I am not always this disciplined)  I made them into a border!!

And now.... I will quilt it!!
So you will see it one more time before it goes to its own home!!

Pretty kitties!!! (Because it's a known fact that EVERYTHING is better in batik!)

Missy Shay said...

I have never thought of doing a border where the colored fabric is only in two corners. I really like that effect!

Lori said...

You aren't disciplined??? 😉
