Crazy Cats Row Robin

Over the last few evenings in amongst housework, looking after MIL and working on other projects I've also been trying to get my Row for the Row Robin done and am pleased to say that I got it finished last night so let me introduce you to my bunch of crazy kitties.

This is where I probably sound slightly crazy when I say that when I picked up the basic blocks each of the kitties whispered me and told me what they wanted to look like so they came together very easily..

Blue kitty was full of love so he wanted a heart and some hand stitching.

Brown kitty is a bit of a misfit, he's had a tough life and is by no means pretty with his odd sized eyes and scruffy patches.
Green Kitty, loved the patterns in his border fabric so decided he wanted to be dotty, and he loved the idea of having different eyes. Orange kitty, is a bit snooty. He loves his pristine coat and wanted nothing more than a collar and tag.And pink kitty spied some scraps which hadn't yet been clear away on the worktable and knew they were perfect for him. It was difficult trying to get a decent picture of the row joined up, this shot of it pegged on the line was about as good as I could get.

I also made a very basic journal to send round with my quilt, cover made from an old greeting card I had in the draw.
I decorated the pages with plenty more kitties! My row is now all packed and ready to begin it's journey across the pond, I can hardly wait to see what this is going to look like in a few months time when it's ready to come home again.

They're awesome Angela! I like them all very very much, don't even have a favorite this time as they all have great personalities.

you've created a good solid row as the foundation for your piece -- lots of colours, and pattern variety to encourage the women after you. Love the book you made to accompany it all too :-)

They make for a fantastic line up. Will be very interesting to see what happens on their travels

I think yuor cats are great Angela - especially how each seems to have a personality of its own! It should be an awesome quilt!
Hugs,

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your kitties and how you've given them each an individual personality. Hope the other participants really enter into the spirit of it :)
