last december i completed my first quilt along, and it was so much fun!
i stumbled across it on my pinterest just days before it was beginning and so i had to decide now or never...
the catvent was put on by Elizabeth Hartman (http://www.ohfransson.com/) and each day in december (1-25) a cat head was created.
this was the perfect opportunity to keep crafting during finals time as well as get a good dose of practice quilting in.
plus it knocked out a little chunk of all the batik fabrics i inherited from my grandma's leftovers, plus this giant piece of gray i ended up not using for it's original purpose.
i'm very pleased with the result, and will sooner or later do a bigger one with 100 cats Smiley

Cute kitties.  I really like how you came up with your own layout. This is on my bucket list.
