Last year (almost to the day) Merrilee of Mer Mag shared her design of the most adorable quilt ever made. I knew instantly that I needed one. Who wouldn't want 63 black quilted cats keeping them warm at night? Luckily I also love teaching myself new things because I didn't know the first thing about how to make a quilt! I learned a lot over the last year making this monster: don't be lazy - iron everything, a cutting mat and rotary cutter are my best friends, when figuring out how much fabric you need do the math twice and then just buy more anyway.
I had the top of the quilt finished in about a month, but then I was stuck on what color to use for the back. I finally settled on this mustard yellow and got that done in another week. I had done all but the binding because, honestly, I was scared of that part. It sat in my closet all summer. Yesterday I decided to go for it and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be! It was actually pretty fun!
So here's another item crossed off my bucket list. Hooray for kitty quilts! Oh, and I got a kitty! Say hello to Muffin in the last picture! She's not too happy about all these new kitties on the bed.
