 Roll Eyes Cats and quilts just seem to go together. This little quilt was pieced using a paper piecing pattern from Granny's Nanny's in Virginia.  I made the kitties years before I put them together, and I no longer had the same background fabric for the sashing.  If I look closely, I can tell that the sashing is a different fabric, but I don't think to many people will notice. . .

Here are close ups of the kitties.  The orange one is in memory of my beloved Rusty.

but the slight variation in color looks cool. Makes it look more like a window surrounding each kitty!!

I also love this! I'm inspired to try a kitty quilt as I have a pair of kittens (who are growing up TOO fast) that I adore MADLY.  This is really pretty.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

I like your kitties.  I am in the process of making one now.  It is on my design board.  I am doing mine all in 30's print.
a free pattern for the kitties can be found at

Glad you like the kitties - I love 30's prints, so please post when you're done. 
Oh, I tried to click on the link you posted, and got an error message.  I truncated the site name to http://www.becauseifeellikeit.com and was able to get onto the site - and then I had to click on another link or two to see the kitty pattern.  It is a little different (and bigger) than my pattern, but just as cute.
