Cats looking at the stars

I don't think anything has ever come together as fast as these cats.  I sewed together the blocks I posted yesterday.


Then made some little stars to fill in the gaps and added another cat and another big star to the right hand side.


Then one last star,some more triangles and the two last cat blocks and I have this,which I am pretty happy with. Now I'm taking it to back to whence it came, to see what the verdict is and what happens next.    Maybe they need a Jellicle Moon.

This will be my last post before Christmas I think, but we'll back on 29th with the last AHIQ link up of the year, so I hope to see some of you there, and in the meantime happy holidays, one and all.

  2. Isn't it fun when inspiration and time to execute strike at the same time! You sound so much more upbeat over this one.

  7. A lovely way to wrap up the year. These aren't Kaffe's cats to me. EPU Jellicle cats. (Sound it out. Won't she hate that. Might start preferring Mum.)

  11. it's so wonderful. I loved the cats. I would have just dithered but you got to work. It's ordered but random, that's a gift girl. Speaking of gifts I sent you something small. LeeAnna

  16. Love your Jellicle Cats, and how the bright fabrics complement them. For some reason, I can still hear one of my daughter's friends reciting the poem in their third grade poetry recital years ago. I don't know why that particular one stuck with me, but your quilt has it echoing in my head again in her voice. I bet your mum (ahem, your ancient female parent) is thrilled with what you've done with her cats. I've been quiet in commenting lately. I guess going on a blogcation also meant going on a comment-cation, too, but that doesn't mean I haven't been watching your progress on this quilt and on your Quiet Quilt (which I do love--even if the repetition was trying for you). Happy New Year!

  17. You've really pulled this one together prettily, and I'm sure your ancient female parent (that is just too funny, btw) is going to be thrilled with it. If not, there's another ancient who will appreciate the Jellicle Ball you're having.
    Happy 2016!

Feel free to comment away! I read everything and welcome all feedback. I seem to be getting a lot of comments from no-reply bloggers at the moment - if you don't get a response, that will be why.
