Top Cat

While on vacation, I took an afternoon to finish up the Cat Fancy top…

Well – mostly finished it. I got all the blocks together, and the thin black border. But the last piece is a large, decorative border…

But that border needs to be mitered. I’m just not up to that, so the top is now up at Mom’s. She’s going to take care of it for me. (I am such a lucky girl!)

The kit didn’t come with backing fabric. Nothing jumped out at me on our last trip to Lens, so I decided to splurge a little and ordered this cute print from Missouri Star Quilt co.

It should be here any day now. Hopefully I can turn this one into an FO by the end of May!

    I can’t do mitered corners either. I’ve watched every tutorial but it still is a mystery. Love that kitty material. It will be a perfect backing.

    What a beautiful quilt!!!! The border fabric is so perfect and I would buy several yards of that backing fabric just to have it. This quilt is a cat lover’s dream.
