Makes Me Smile - Quilt

I completed this quilt about one year ago. Just ran across the pictures this morning and I thought I would post them. As you know I have three cats and that I think they are pretty special - so why not feature my "star cats" in a quilt along with 8 pointed stars.

The size is 75 x 85 with 1,288 cut pieces in the blocks. The cats are machine appliqued. The detail work is also machine made...just used different type stitches to accomplish what I wanted. Sixteen different fabrics were used. It was a great way to use up those little 1/2 yard pieces.

As with all my quilts, it was hand quilted.

Hi Amelia, not sure if you are the one who stops by my blog or not, but I linked over from Julie Q's. What a gorgeous cat quilt! I love the cats, and your work is just wonderful.
Hurray for you for hand quilting, not much of that going on anymore. It's wonderful to see and hear someone who does. Great job! Hugs, Finn

What a fun quilt! When you first look, you see the stars, and then discover the sweet kittens. It made me smile also.
