50 for 2011 - #7 -finish up the cat quilt

Wow, I'm really behind on this... I haven't updated this list since May!

Looking over my list, I see a number of things I've no idea what I meant by them... Two things I'm working on at present.  And at least one thing I finished, but didn't mark down.

Anyway: the cat quilt's done! Let's take pictures.

Say "Cat!"

I finished this before my, um, illness, two weeks ago. But just now getting around to posting it.  I completed the top before my now 5 year old daughter was born, and then procrastinated on doing the quilting and binding... until now.

And, no, it's not this shape, it's a fairly good rectangle.

and the backing...

I'm not happy with the quilting, frankly, I find quilting on my machine to be kind of nerve-racking, and the stitches go from being super close together to being super far apart without warning.  I'm not sure I'll ever quilt anything so large again, and for all that, it's only a baby sized blanket... There's something to be said for just using ties.
