Quilts for Kids - Kitties Quilt

Quilts for Kids
This quilt was so fun to make because I did not use a pattern. I love when that works in my favor.

I fussy cut the kitty squares then just framed them with strips of gold fabric. I then put them on the design wall and decided to make 4 rows of three blocks framed in blue fabric strips with a border of the same fabric. And viola! Very simple.Very quick. Love the color combinations because it was constructed entirely out of donated fabrics. Sometimes that can be a challenge since usually fabrics can be coordinated easily but not always is there enough yardage so it is a bonus when it all works out.

I decided to use variegated blue thread to machine quilt this giving it a picture window effect.  Normally dark thread would be a bad idea on light fabric but I thought it gave the whole quilt an interesting look. I hope whoever receives it likes it too.
