There’s a story about my dad and a green cat that we’ve joked about through the years. We’ll have to be sure Chad knows the story, though I’m sure he does but he needs to pass it along to Adalina so she won’t think her granny was crazy for making green cat quilts. It’s a story you tell her when she’s an adult . . it’s not a kid story! 🙂
Here’s the green cat quilt I made dad a few years back.
I have a small collection of green cats. Here’s a little coin purse that I had framed.
When I saw Sheryl’s September block for the Christmas Town Sampler, I knew what I had to make!
Applique with that sticky stuff is still not fun but after three months of it, I’m only thinking the bad words and I don’t think I’ve actually said any today while working on this block. Since I was alone in the sewing room, I don’t have to admit to it even if I did! As much as I complain about applique, it’s just so cute and some things you just can’t do with traditional piecing so I should learn to like applique and stop whining . . doubtful!

Judy, I love your dad’s green cat quilt. I’m with you – I love what can be done with appliqué but I don’t like doing it. I think you’re doing a great job and your Santa green cat is really cute.

Ooh, what a teaser you are… to mention this and then not TELL the story!! Pretty-please, fill us in?
Love the Santa green cat, and your dad’s cat quilt is precious.

What? You aren’t going to tell us the story…. We are all adults, aren’t we!
Green with envy that’s what I am. I love em, and think every cat should from this day forth, should be a green cat!! You and your dad have great taste in cats!
I love that quilt! Was it a pattern or with the cats pre-printed on the material?
I love, love, love the green cat! Good job, Judy.
