Happy Cats is finished

I have finished my Happy Cats baby quilt. It measures 35" x 45", a useful size which can be used initially as a floor quilt for tummy time and kicking on, it's good for snuggling with Mummy and then can be used on the cot or as a topper on a toddler bed.

I have used quite different colours in this quilt, mostly driven by the navy and cream background small cats fabrics. Everything came from stash. I managed to use a blue and white fabric I had, extending it with a fawn with tiny white dots so that it was large enough for the backing.  I used the same fabric for the binding.

I made this quilt really quickly.  I cut out fabrics on 8th July and by 28th July it was completed!

The pieced backing:

I was pleased with how even and pretty straight my machine quilting was -I am still learning this skill:

Now just waiting for the baby to be born so I can make a label.
