Christmas cats

Thanksgiving is out of the way so now it’s time to focus on Christmas!

The first Christmas project that has to be done is the “Night before Kit-mas” quilt. As I mentioned before, it’s going to be raffled off to raise funds for Natalie and the kitties at Bee Meadow Farm.

That means it has to be done well before Christmas so it can be raffled off and mailed to the winner in plenty of time for the silly season. My goal was to have it done by the end of October, so Natalie can hold the raffle sometime in November.

And I’m happy to say, I’m well in sight of reaching my goal… the top is finished!

I told you that you’d be seeing more chains in my quilts – I just love them! This one is a nice lap size (about 52″ square), and filled with kitten/Christmas fun!

And can we talk for a minute about plaid? You know I love plaid, right. But what I love even more…

Diagonal plaid! I paid full price for this one – but it was worth it. It’s the perfect fabric to wrap the whole thing up with!

Now I just need to get a backing, then I can get this one quilted and ready to raffle!

    I LOVE it!!! That plaid is perfect. I learned to stay away from them (and stripes) because I always got them wonky but yours is perfect. Well done!!!

    That is such a wonderful quilt! When I saw the first photo, my eyes instantly went to the border. It is such a perfect fabric for the border on that quilt and worth full price. I love diagonal plaids for binding. Your quilt should a great fund-raising project.

  3. Fantastic quilt! Love the chains setting and that diagonal plaid is just the thing for the border! (I admit I grab them too, whenever I see them. And always wish later that I had bought more!)
