Cats lattice

     Due to the work for the guild show, this quilt is coming along slowly. I have the front done and the back needs final big borders. It is a reversible quilt as the recipient is in a nursing home and having two sides is twice the fun. I want to write this pattern up as I think someone else might want to make one.
     On the back, the cats cut from the panel made a great grouping. For the last borders, which have to be wide because it is the back going on the longarm, I originally choose the diamond green. Because it has a directional pattern, I fumed and fussed trying to figure out how to cut it. Finally I thought to just try something else. I will cut the top gray polka dot for the last border. Problem solved. Quilt top is about 58 x 80.

A muted green polka dot doesn't add much

Well, how cute it that for a back....also as fun as the front. I like the grays too. It's almost show time and the work will be done.

Absolutely fabulous! I love that the quilt is reversible and each side is so different. It’s like having two quilts in one!

Such a cute panel, and you did a great job with it! I'm sure the recipient will love it.
