Cats And Buttons
A good friend of mine asked me to make her sister's MIL a quilt because she's not well, and wanted to cheer her up. She liked cats, buttons and the colour green, so this is what we came up with! I used lots of bright and happy colours because if she needed some cheering up, then making it colourful seemed like a good idea. Plus it's me... I do like me some colours :)
Elizabeth's cat head pattern but adjusted it slightly to make it bigger (mine came out to be 5.5" x 6.5"), which made the dimensions just a bit different. Because as always, I can't leave well along :)
Seriously, how adorable is this??? I'm going to make these little cat heads again, I just know it... perhaps my living room needs a kitty pillow? Or two? Or three?
Initially, my friend wanted to put button eyes on all the cats but we figured it might be tooooo many buttons. 49 cats, 98 eyes... yikes. I like my friend but not that much, ya know? Heehee! So we decided to place them in the cornerstones, and they add a nice little extra touch.
I hope she loves it and since it's almost winter in Australia, I hope she spends many cosy hours under it :)
