I made this for two friends who were expecting their first baby. One of them is a DJ, so I knew I wanted a music theme for their quilt, and they also have four cats, so I added a cat theme and came up with dancing cats:



The one with the headphones and turntable is the DJ and the others are dancing around it. Tongue

Here are some close-ups of the different cats.







I made the cats by getting images from the internet of dancing cats (or happy cats, disco cats, party cats...I must have used a dozen different search terms to get enough cartoon-y images!). Then I traced the major parts of the cats onto some fusible web, cut out the different fabrics, fused, and stitched in place.
