Sparkling Stars and boxes of kitties

This is my version of Marcie's quilt pattern that she so generously put on her website for us. I added the outer border. The colors aren't showing the greatest....I took the picture tonight down in my sewing room. I'm thinking I might do some big stitch quilting on it.

This is where my silly cats sleep a good part of the day....of course the littlest one is in the biggest box. :)

Great quilt. I love star quilts!

Priscilla said...

oh, your star quilt looks lovely, I do like the way it looks with the border, it seems to finish it better.
LOL at your cats - funny how they seem to prefer a cardboard box to a nice comfy chair!

Your star quilt is beautiful Yvonne! Gotta love those silly kitties! I usually find mine in baskets of fat quarters.

Your Christmas Sparkler turned out great! I can't see if there is any Christmas fabric in it, but there sure doesn't need to be. Your cats are so funny!

Love the Sparkles Quilt great job! The kitties must love it when new boxes arrive...they get to play and sleep in them...

How cute your cats are in their boxes! I have a box that I got some fabric in that had a lid and a bottom, the lid is in the den and the bottom is in my sewing room, my kitty Talula loves sleeping in both of them. The cleaning lady keeps trying to throw out the one in the den, and my husband has to keep telling her to leave it. Kitties love boxes huh?

Lovely! For me?! LOL!

Darlene said...

I love it! Tell Kim to back off - it's for ME! LOL

The "Kids" look very comfy!

The quilt is so nice, like the border you've added.
And I just love your cat, I had one like it many years ago, she just loved to lie on top of the paper I was reading ;))
Happy Thoughts

Awww look at those kitties stuffed in the boxes. They sure like to find the oddest places to sleep.

I love the start quilt you made.

Janet said...

I love the border you've added to your Christmas Sparkler quilt. I'm making it too and can't decide yet if I'll add borders or not.

Were you not tempted to close the flaps over? Just a little bit? ;-)

Am blog-hopping my way through Chookyblue's SSCS list to see who else is playing.
