Cats, cats, cats....

Do you remember Alfons? It´s my son´s little cat. Now he is about 1/2 year old and has grown a lot (but still the cutest...except that day he chewed on my new bag....).
On this pictures he´s just a very small kitten, but the most wonderful little creature I´ve ever seen....


My mother also loves cats, she has one herself, a big, grey and white boy called Ylle. I think we are a cat family, all of us love cats. Sorry that no one can stay with us, that´s because I´m allergic.

Next week it´s my mother´s birthday, and I decided to make her a quilt. I purchased beautiful cat fabrics a while ago, and now I got use for them.

I cut out the cats and made them to blocks.

Then I put them together like this.

Today I will add a lot of squares and borders to finish the top. Hope she will like it!
But first of all I will take a walk, the sun is shining and that doesn´t happen every day......

Have a nice day/evening/night/morning.....wherever you are!

Hi Helena, your son's cat is adorable. We are a cat family too. The quilt you are making looks familiar. Ik have the same fabric but I don't want to cut the panels up. They are so lovely.

Vilken supersöt kattquilt du håller på med! Randiga tyger gillar jag - de är så effektfulla!
Hoppas du har en skön Alla hjärtans dag!
