I showed a blurry photo of this baby quilt as it was coming together in an earlier post.
I thought as neither cousin who is having the babies (I am making two quilts!) knows what they are having I would make it scrappy. I love this modern pattern. It is quick and easy.
This fabric is what I am thinking of using for the backing. It is a great fabric I picked up cheap at IKEA.
The center block is a hand appliqued cat, embroidered around the edge and for the face by my Grandma. She also use to make dog blocks. These were used in quilts for the second generation of grandchildren. My generation received charm square quilts. Here is the first one she gave me when I was about 3 or 4.
I still love to sleep under it. It is very heavy.
Here is the second one she gave me when I was around 12 or 13.
I love to put this on my bed in the summer. I love the shirting fabrics she used from fabric sample cards.
I love them both. I need to get a photo of my sisters cat quilt. It had about 12 blocks in it.
