Pets on Quilts Show

Welcome to my second entry for the Pets on Quilts Show 2015
This is for the animal themed Cat-egory.  I had planned to use the Kitties in the Garden quilt as my entry, however I just have to show this instead. 
A few weeks ago  I posted the beginning of this project for the Vintage Lovers Swap on instagram.  My swap partner received her package yesterday so I can share the pictures. (I will share what I received in my awesome package later)  This is my Louis Wain inspired Cat tote.  It was incredibly fun to make.  The interior pockets are made from the same fabric used in the Kitties in the Garden quilt. I used part of a Stonehenge charm pack and dug into my scrap buckets to make the LW cat. 
Be sure to check out the other critters n quilts over at Lily Pads Quilting and leave some comment love- Snoodlz has a prize drawing for those who visit each entry and comment!

Hurray it's the 2015 Pets on Quilts Show

I have been waiting and watching for Lily Pads Quilts Pets on Quilts Show!  And it's finally here! I've been watching from the sidelines for a few years and decided that I was gonna be a part this year.  Now I just gotta remember where I put those pictures!  I apologize in advance - when posting from my phone the pictures sometimes do odd things.
Okay for the Cats on Quilts category - I give you - Earl "Stanley" Grey,  my official quilt tester.
He is posing on the Kitties in the Garden quilt that I made for a dear friend who would love to have a cat but travels alot so can not.   He also seems to know that the Cozy Afternoon BOM has his name on it and enjoys laying on the instructions. The Kitties the Garden could also go in the animal themed category because it has 4 different cat themed fabrics.  However I have another project for that category! Stay tuned!
Be sure to stop back at Lily Pads to see all the amazing quilts n critters! There are some amazing sponsors this year too. Thanks for stopping by!
