A little bit more crafted applique

Two more little panels to go with the first one:



Just for once I am not aiming at something the size of a small elephant.  The three little panels (10.5" squares) are heading for my girl's bedroom, so I'll sew them together, sandwich and do some simple quilting, then, with a bit of luck and a fair wind, Bob's your uncle.  It will look like this, only nicely tidied up.

Looks really pretty, I love the three backgrounds together and the expression in the shape of the kitty cat really draws me in - would love these in my room anyday!

These are super cute, Kaja! I really love your daughter's little cat in these pretty fantasy gardens. They have a great feel to them. What is their destiny?

My first reaction to your pics was Oh lovely! Then I really started to appreciate them. Very good, beautiful designs and lovely colours. Your daughter is very lucky, I'm sure she will love them.

Delightful! I really appreciate your ideas, refreshing.

I really like that you continued with this project to include more blocks instead of just the one for the blog post about Lara's book. So neat to include your daughter's drawing in all three.

It's been great to see your blocks Kaja, they are very pretty! The fabric you used is really striking.
Your daughter's kitty is so very sweet, and how lovely for her that her drawing has been included in her Mum's stitchery.
