One Hundred Forty Two...

I have 142 different cat fabrics! I love to buy quilting fabric, but I don't just buy any fabric. My favorites are bright colored fabrics in rainbow colors, Valentine fabrics, trains, and cats. This is the quilt I recently made for my Dad for his birthday, because he loves cats! I used the Turning Twenty pattern, and there are 72 different cat fabrics on the front, and 4 on the back!Here are a few closeup pictures.
Can you find the one that is NOT cats? ;-)
This is the back of the quilt. The fabric in the middle is called Kitty Chronicles.
It is a fabric newspaper with cute cat stories.
I quilted it on my Statler Stitcher, with a design called Here Kitty. If you look closely you can see one of the quilted cat designs.
And last, but not least, this is my helper. She thought the quilt was for her... that is a very logical conclusion, don't you think?
