first cat blocks

  What do you mean you don't see any cats? Fair enough, how about cat tails? These blocks are much more complex than the actual cat body blocks, so I decided to get these done first. I need 10 of these blocks for the grandbaby quilt, but I have enough pieces cut to make 20, so the extras will end up in a charity quilt I'm sure. I had a blast choosing fabric for this quilt. The dark blue fabric has dogs on it (dogs chase cats), one of the bright greens has mice (cats chase mice), the yellow balls of yarn (cats play with yarn), one of the whites has paw prints, one of them has umbrellas (raining cats and dogs came to mind), and there is a big cat print with the leopard spots. These blocks only represent 20 of the 43 fabrics that will be in the quilt.

Where did you find the pattern for the Snail-Trail Cats?? I'd love to see the link. :) I have 6 cats at home. LOL!
