Kitty quilt

It's so nice to have blocks ready-made to work with.  I participated in a swap for cat blocks some time ago on About.com quilting site.  They are having another swap, and I'm debating if I want to join again.  It's nice to pull out blocks and put together a quilt.
I had the perfect backing--fish in a flannel.  I also used an inexpensive fleece throw that Pat got a while back for batting.  We thought we could use them as backing without batting, but that didn't have wonderful results.  I have another kitty quilt top put together and ready to quilt.

They are a little more time consuming as I like to do my own design on the kitties, and then the frames, etc.  But the second one should go faster!
