This is the third quilt I made, a BOM. I completed this quilt top in 2006, it was partially quilted in the ditch. I didn't know how to fmq so it was put aside while I worked on another quilt and of course it was forgotten until I saw SewCalGal's post about Pets on quilts Show. I have been busy finishing off the quilt, FMQ  oh yes, I tried! I even quilted Christmas trees on the Christmas cat block and little fish on the narrow border. I've also embellished it with lovely cute buttons. there's  little mice, fish bones,  a bell, a Christmas wreath, Ilove cats button, meow button and a few cat buttons. I did some hand stitching too. Lots of creases from being folded away for almost 4 years!!  I am happy that its now finished.
