I just needed to MAKE something

I'm in the middle of quilting my 9 patch and it's a HUGE job. I came home from school last night via Ballarat Patchwork, with a Prints Charming panel, and "inspiration"
I just needed to make something, so although I need a trip to Spotlight for a size 18 cushion insert, I FINISHED something! A great feeling.
Ages ago I made this lovely cat bed for my Nellie Puss out of an old felted jumper. She loves it and sleeps in it all the time. We needed one for our Max . . .
. . . so Miss Flowergarden got busy the other night, and
Look who's a lucky boy now!
Yes Nellie, you're still my girl!!

I love your new cushion - especially the striking design and the raw edge applique. Miss Flowergarden did a great job on the cat bed - looks like a snug and practical design.

I love it all! The new pillow is so cute and I love the colors. And the cat beds are darling -- I wonder if my kitties would sleep in them?

Great cushion Annie, there's nothing quite like the feeling of 'finishing' is there? Love your new header too, really nice montage of photo's. Going to the Begonia quilt show tomorrow, looking forward to that.
Have a good weekend

Those beds are quite awesome. Do you have any instructions for someone else who'd like to make one?
