My grandma Ida made these kitten blocks when I was around 8 years old. They never made it into a quilt so when my first granddaughter was born, I put some of the blocks together into a baby quilt for her. My granny used double knit fabrics for the kittens and blanket stitched them to the background. She would be proud that her great-great granddaughter was all snug as a bug in a quilt made with her blocks.
I also have enough blocks left to make my grandson a quilt too!
The second photo shows my granddaughter laying on another quilt that I made for her using my Granny Ida's favorite block, the Churn Dash! Isn't she a cutie pie!
My granddaughter is all grown up now...She will start kindergarten this fall! Where has the time gone!! She is dressed up for a football game at a local high school and she is all decked out supporting her favorite player!
