Meow - The Cat Quilt


When Cyndi told me she was making a cat quilt to donate to the NO KILL animal shelter where she volunteers, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.

I could never volunteer at a shelter without bringing them all home with me!  There are so many times my husband and I want to stop in to see what dogs are available but I know I couldn't look them in the eye and walk away with just one of them.

Cyndi wanted kitty paws all over the quilt.  We found a great quilting motif with paws and the MEOW tossed about too.

Cyndi also used the purr-fect backing!   The quilt is back in the mail today so she can finish up the binding in time for the auction.

When I woke this morning our home had a beautiful glow coming through the front windows.
....and because he loves me.

Such a cute quilt, and love the backing and the quilting is perfect. Now I need to make a cat quilt so you can use that quilting on it. We live near a no-kill shelter. We donate supplies each month and it is extremely difficult to walk away but, we have two dogs and two cats, we've done our part, for now.

When our cat went missing (some years ago) we went to the shelter to see if he had landed there. As we left, I asked Hubby if he had noticed a particular kitty that was available for adoption. He told me, "I just looked in each kennel, 'Not my cat, not my cat. And made NO eye contact. '"

Definitely for a great cause. I'm with you - I want to go see the animals at the shelters, but it just breaks my heart to leave them there.

I made that kitty quilt but it was a swap of blocks by a group in Yahoo for Canadian members. I just got it hand quilted by my mothers group can't wait to see it! That is a great block to play with.
It is so nice to be loved and then shown how much
