It was at a very small, local quilt show that I saw this layout in a wall hanging. It caught my eye as very unusual and striking. I sketched it out and puzzled over it at home.
I'm not entirely sure if I had already purchased the batik cat squares prior to that quilt show or if I bought them later with this layout in mind. Whichever scenario it was, I like the way the batik cats are set off by the gold border.
I must admit that in my haste to finish this project, I didn't even quilt the pillow top! To be truthful, I don't even think I thought of quilting it! :-)
