Meow! A Secret Santa Gift

I would like to begin this post with a huge thank you to everyone who left comment on my last post wishing my hubby a speedy recovery. Not much as changed in his condition, but we did see movement with his eyebrow this morning, so things are finally going in the right direction.

Now about this secret Santa gift... I finished the cat pillow I showed you in my last post. You'll remember that I made this pillow as a Secret Santa gift for my daughter's friend at school. This friend loves cats so when Elizabeth of Oh! Fransson posted her cat patterns, my daughter and I knew I had to use those blocks for the pillow.

I quilted it with very simple straight lines and used a cute paw print to make the envelope backing for it.

I'm told the friend loved her pillow! A teacher even asked if she could have one. :-)

I hope you have a great weekend. I know mine will be busy... Last minute shopping, laundry, cleaning. And of course a few handmade gifts will be finished... I hope!

I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts and at TGIFF hosted by Vickie this week.

  6. Very cute! I bet she just loved it.

    I've got the first handful of cats done but then went on holidays leaving my fabric and sewing machine behind! I'll have to catch up in January.
