Kitty Cucumber Patchwork Crib Size Quilt by faeriegood

What a great shower gift this would make,or maybe it's the perfect gift for the special little girl in your life.

This adorable quilt was designed, pieced and machine quilted by me, and is made of quilt shop cotton fabric with 100 percent cotton batting. It features six different framed kitty cucumber motifs alternated by pieced patchwork squares.

Pink is the predominant color, followed by green, purple and yellow. The binding was carefully hand sewn for the best possible finish and matches the backing fabric which is also used in the quilt body. I have already washed it several times to get the vintage crinkly look and the finished measurement is now 54"x41".It can be machine washed and dried.

The quilt was inspired by kitty named Bossy who crossed over the rainbow last spring. He had a pretty good life for a rescued ferral cat and had just celebrated his 20th (human years) birthday. He lived up to his name and helped to train my various dogs, cats, bunnies and hamsters in proper social conduct throughout his life time.

From the proceeds of the sale of this item I will donate $50 to the EFA Charity of the month for April which is:S*N*O http//
