A cat quilt which we didn't finish...


I was a bit too ambitious this time with my oldest granddaughter.  I thought it was a good time to teach her how do make a simple hand stitched quilt block, but the stitching part turned out to be too daunting.  We'll set it aside and try it again in a year or so.  Or maybe we'll start over.

She loves cats, and my nickname for her is Kitty Kat, so this is what I designed for her.  I encouraged her to choose unrealistic colors, and I gave her a wide variety of fabrics to choose from.  We traced the pattern that I had made onto fusible interfacing and cut out the fused fabric pieces that way.  She was a little careless with her tracing and cutting, so some of the pieces turned out a bit wonky.  That's ok...that's how we learn!
