Kitty Cat Charm Quilt


This is Eileen's Kitty Cat Charm quilt and it is a pattern from the October 2000 issue of McCalls Quilting Magazine.  She used just scraps to make this quilt top!  Since this is a gift for her great niece to go on her bed we chose a light density panto called Popcorn and Quilters Dream Blend batting.  The thread is a light beige So Fine thread.




Guess what I've been doing out on the lake again this year?  :)



I just walked in the snow on the ice to create the swirls and the snow is knee deep so it's a good work out!  Only had the energy to walk about 6 and hope to add more over the next few weeks.
