This is a quilt for my 11 year old daughter. She shares my love of fabric and all things crafty. She loves lime green and cats, which is where I got the inspiration for it. This has been a WIP for almost 2 years now but luckily (??) we are in the middle of a heatwave and I have a stomache bug so I was able to stitch non-stop for 2 days while enjoying the AC! It's a lap quilt about 48" x 48". She went away with her friend's family for a long weekend and hasn't seen it yet. I can't wait to see her face!

Let's stick to regular Monopoly. The game is crazy enough as it is; how can an iron be a landlord?

Thank you!
Yes, my daughter was over the moon when she saw it, which is quite amazing for the middle child. She's been wearing it over her shoulders for 2 days now during a heatwave.  Grin
