Cat Quilts

I love it when I have help to do my quilting.

Grace, Mitchell and Caitlin are carefully placing the blocks so that the cat blocks are in the center and the 4-patch blocks make a checkerboard around the kitty in the middle. There is a total of 12 blocks and this will make 2 Cat Quilts.

These two quilts will lay on a bed or couch so cats can snuggle up on them. They will be big enough to fold in half so they are extra fluffy. The cat quilts can be washed and fluffed up in the dryer. Cats love fluffy quilts.

Do you think the cats will like the Jim Shore fabric?

Thanks for all your help kids. I'll machine quilt these next week along with all my other small projects. One will be for Aurora and Aunt Pear's cat, and the other will be for Michelle and Scott's cats.
