I've been working on gift quilts for my youngest nephew and nieces. The quilts are now in their hands, so I can now share my work without spoiling the surprise.
Her mom told me that my youngest niece likes pinks and purples, and I know she likes cats, so this is what I came up with.
It is made with the Tiddlywinks pattern by Roxanne Carter available free HERE. I made this one scrappy with many different fabrics.
The backing is a cat print. It love the print, but I must admit that after working with it, I am less enamoured with the sparkles! They add a nice touch, but my goodness, they are everywhere in my house now!
This is a fairly quick and easy pattern (if you aren't as challenged as I am about layout!), and I've seen it done several ways--different fabrics or different layouts. Jenny Doan did a Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial with an attractive layout HERE.
This quilt is in the dryer as I write--with the sparkles that I'm sure will be left in the machine, my husband and I may be looking pretty festive for a while.
