I mean, how could they not be??? As you can see, I finished the top for Spring Kittens. And I am just smitten!
When I finished the main star blocks, my intention was to just to plain sashing and cornerstones. Then I remembered the Royal Stars quilt and decided the kittens needed more stars too!
I went stash diving and came up with just enough pale, mottled pink for the star points.
For a person who loves pink, I actually didn’t have much in my stash. I was lucky that this one almost perfectly matched the shade in those little butterflies.
Normally, I eschew pastel baby quilts, prefering much bolder shades, but I gotta say…
… I REALLY love how soft and pretty this one is. The fact that it’s covered in kittens certainly doesn’t hurt either.
I had enouch of those cute aqua kittens for a border
As well as binding….
That aqua stripe will be a good backing, when I get around to quilting it. I’m not sure when that will be. We’ve started seriously house-hunting now. Since we are completely priced out of our current area, we are looking about 2 hours away. We are lucky that our jobs allow us to move that far, but it means weekends, for the time being, are given over to fitting in as many showings as we can. Quilting may have to take a back seat until we finally buy something.
