This quilt contains 56 cats, each made from a different fabric featuring stars. It took me quite a while to find the 56 different materials since this was my FIRST quilt and I didn't have a fabric stash yet! I started this quilt when my daughter was in 1st grade, then life distracted me and the quilt became a family joke ( a dreaded UFO!). No one thought it would EVER get done!
During her senior year I worked diligently to finish it and I did! I had a wonderful woman machine quilt it for me and I made a binding from the different star materials. The material on the back is pastel yellow with adorable, tiny grey mice all over it! I love it! Needless to say, my daughter opened this gift at her graduation and was speechless. She had no idea I had been working on it.
She loves this quilt and I'm so proud that it was finished for this wonderful occasion. It was 12 years in the making, just as her education was.
Finished May, 2012
