Nine-Patch Kittens
Over the many years that I have been quilting, several general principles have applied: 1. There is no cure for the quilting habit. 2. We all buy fabric as though it will suddenly become unavailable next week. 3. We spend an irrational amount of time using as little as possible of one acquired fabric. 4. Many quilters have a soft spot for cats. We love cat motifs in all sizes, shapes and configurations. I hope you ahd our furry friend enjoy this quilt as much as I do. Quilt Size: 34 1/2" x 43".
