Kitty Cat Quilt completed

Whew!  Just squeaking in before the end of month deadline with my May OMG project – not the best of photos, taken inside as I ran out of daylight hours to take one outside (and besides, it’s been raining and blowing and bitterly cold today, so not ideal weather for al fresco photography anyway!).

Each block has simple, outward-radiating big stitch quilting around the central ‘framed’ cat/s, with the backing a cute cat-themed fabric I found in my stash:

At our last quilting club meeting a call went out for quilts for the children’s ward at Christchurch Hospital, so that’s where this one will end up, possibly along with another couple which I made last year (or was it the year before …), which have been waiting for the right time, right recipient to come along 🙂

Linking up with the OMG linky party at Red Letter Quilts here.

PS  I may have succeeded with my OMG project this month, but the Quilty 365 circles challenge is another matter altogether:  not one single circle done this month! 😦  Maybe I should make catching up on those my OMG challenge for June …?

  1. It looks great! I can’t believe you handstitched the whole thing.
    I am in the same place as you, with a lot of the projects that I haven’t finished, it’s because my skills have gotten better and I don’t know how to compensate for not-so-good choices made in the past. You have done a great job and I know you are happy to be sending it out the door to be useful!
