A 'Lil Catz  Mini Wallhanging Finish

                                              'Lil Cat  Cat Show and Tell  at
                                         Quilt Art Designs blog    with Janeen   Sept. 25

Remember what I shared with you earlier this month?    { here }

 My WIP  -'Lil Catz    pattern   by Quilt Art Designs   {HERE}

You know what happens  after you say "Yes" to  more than one cat..... 

'Lil Catz Mini wallhanging         made by Susie's Sunroom

'Lil Catz Mini Wallhanging -     design by Janeen at Quilt Art Designs  {here}
Size:    28 "  by 28 "   
Foundation paper pieced pattern -   easy level
Fabrics:      Color Me Happy  by V. and Company  Moda fabrics   - scraps left from a quilt
                  Various black  fabrics from my stash
                  Kona cotton  gray   for the cat block background
                  Navy solid from my stash for the inner border

Quilting thread:   Aurifil   50 weight   teal color from the Color Me Happy Collection

I love the "vivid" border fabric!  It reminds me of kitty cat ears, and  cat's eyes.
And it seemed to make all of the other fabrics  "pop" .  Most of all, it made me smile.

I love how  there are nine different  cat patterns  , giving each cat a  slightly different personality!  And,  this is a great scrap buster project!  Also, a good pattern for beginner paper piecing folks.   

I made simple triangle shaped corner pockets , to hold a dowel rod, for hanging my mini wallhanging....

                          And I am sure that you noticed the little black kitty in the middle ?                                   That's my Whiskers, of course!!  I used several tonal black- on -black                                   fabrics for her face, and of course the emerald green Color Me Happy                                    fabric for her green eyes!

Whiskers is the little black kitten in the center block

I think she likes "her" new little quilt!!
