I managed to get the first two columns done before my head started to hurt way too much but I am totally loving the way its turning out. You can't really tell that the boarders around the cat panels are going to be smaller than they should be - then again I bet if I never mentioned it you never would have known!!
I took the picture below in the fall when I was first working on this blanket, sorry its sideways!! Just do the head-tilt thing and enjoy the sideways quilt'ness! ;)
(Disclaimer so I don't get yelled at tonight or tomorrow by those who love me and might be reading this: I wasn't crawling around on the floor getting up and down to lay all the fabric out and then standing on the couch to take the picture TODAY I promise! I bent down twice to lay out the two strips in the first picture this evening and thats all.... I have been a good girl and have taken it easy this evening!!!)
I think this is going to be a super awesome quilt when its done. I still have no idea how I'm going to finish it I think I might just do the 'stitch in the ditch' technique and call it a day. Its pretty busy so doing too much to the top might take away from all the cute cats! I don't have backing fabric for this quilt yet but I can probably do some shopping for it once the top is all finished in a little bit
This was supposed to be a house warming gift for my Mom and her Husband when they moved into their new house in July last year.....I think it might be a 'Happy 1 year of being in your new house' gift.....! Hey, better late than never right?
