There is a really cool thing going on right now. It's called Pets on Quilts Show and those who want to participate can link to their pet inspired quilts. There is a button on the right you can click to take you there.
I'm not finished with my Kitty Quilt for the NICU, but thought I'd post it, so I can add my link. There are lots of cool prizes for anyone who leaves a comment. Quilter or no.
For those who are late to the party, I've been making baby quilts for the St. Vincent's Infirmary NICU. I found this fabric on clearance at Hancock's for $.50 a yard. I couldn't believe there was an entire roll no one had bought. When I got home with it, I pondered exactly how I wanted to use it, and decided to do kitten silhouettes on the solid pieces. The alternating squares in the nine patch are from napkins I bought at our local Goodwill type facility.
The little friends on the quilt are hand made by myself, when my son was very small. He never really played with them much, but my grandson LMW, loves them. They really wanted to check out the kittehs so I had to snap their photo before they ran back to the ark.
I still have hand stitching to do around three of the kitties, and bind it. The back is the same kitty fabric as the silhouettes. If you want to view more Pets on Quilts, follow the links. And thanks for reading our blog!
