Fast forward a couple years and I came across these cute color-on-color fabrics at JoAnn's. I immediately thought of these Cat fabrics, and wondered if they would go well together in a quilt. I had been wanting to try the Churn Dash pattern, and decided to go for it.
I really was trying to maximize the use of the fabric. It's very bright and fun. When I made it, I really had no idea what it would be for, other than great practice, but my daughter just loves it! She likes all the kitty faces on the pink fabric the best.
The orange border helped break up the cat fabric a bit, and really jumps out at you. (Can you tell the different days of pictures? Some sunny days, some rainy days; neither provided good light. Oh well).
Again, trying to use up as much of the fabric as possible, I pieced together some of the fabric on the back.
I also got to practice some quilting. I made my own cat templates. They kind of look like snowmen with pointy ears on top. It was some of my early quilting, so not my best, but it turned out pretty well. I was very happy with it.
The crazy thing is, I still have more fabric left. Six years later I am still not sure what to do with the fabric that's still left.
I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish Friday. Look forward to seeing what everyone else has finished up. Have a great weekend!
