Why you made it...
For this reaction! No, but seriously I made it because I knew I wanted to make a cat quilt of some sort at sometime (soon) in my life. And, who better to make one for than my sister Angela, she has two wonderful (yet aging) cats, Duke and Daisy! I had the inspiration about a year before I made it! I even kept it a secret (that was real hard to do), until I gave it to her for Xmas 2009. The photo left does show her reaction. She also noticed it was her cats almost right away! I loved it! That was an extra bonus to how excited I was to make it and finish it with pride! Funny thing I noticed after completion was the colors Maroon and Gold were her High School colors. Not intentional but cute! I also made it like I do everyting I make ...to challenge myself. I made up my own pattern and everything as I went along. I am sure this is out there somewhere, but I made it up step by step! Love to learn this craft of Quilting and want to learn all I can and improve in my craft, too!
Why it is special to you...
