Thursday Two

Mom sewed up this pretty green quilt top for a ginger kitty, who lives with the tuxie kitty whose quilt top you saw in yesterday's post.

Here are the two quilts together:
The kitties said Mom had to use the tomato fabrics. One kitty likes frogs and butterflies. The other kitty didn't want frogs, just butterflies. The quilts had to look like they were "related" but different. The quilts also had to be "outdoors-y"

Mom found some nifty fabrics with butterflies and frogs, but really didn't know how she was going to satisfy these two kitties. It was only when some other fabric fell next to the red tomatoes that, as she says, "dawn broke over Marble-head*" and she got an idea that pulled it all together.

(you can click the pictures to biggify)


*Marblehead is a coastal town in Massachusetts. Dawn really does break over it. But I don't think that's what Mom means when she says it.
