Cats and quilts

Here are three versions of a CCS pattern that I've had for a long time. The original has just one quilt with the cat, but I liked the sleeping cat so much that I added it to the other quilt patterns. The first is a star pattern with a tuxedo cat (and I changed the colors of everything, of course):

The second is a flower basket with a grey tabby:

And third is a pastel log cabin with a ginger tabby. This is one of the UFOs I found recently that I've now finished.

Any suggestions as to what to do with these? They'll probably go back into the stack of finished CCS pieces I have tucked into a drawer. My daughters can figure out what to do with them someday.

put sashing on them and stitch them together into a wallhanging. Wouldn't take long...I'm trying not to leave my daughter anything unfinished!

Lovely CCS work Janet, it is a pity not to frame them!

What a neat idea, adding the cat to all three! Great job Janet!

They're too cute to hide, Janet! Maybe you could make a quilt using them along with some blocks to match the background quilts in the CCSs? Knowing you, I'll bet you'll come up with something cool!

HEY JANET--why not add them to a crazy quilt?? I have done that for an RR block! look at you finishing up everything one by one--I finish things--just takes me longer because I have too many interests! *~*CAROLE*~*

I think they'd make a great quilt! All those wonderful colors and kitties to work with!! You have such great talent and creativity it would be a beauty!

You can't just hide these away. You don't say the size of them -- some of my larger pieces I have tacked to the inside of my cabinet doors. They're protected from the elements and I get to look at something pretty each time I open up my kitchen cabinets.

You weren't kidding about finishing up CCS things! Love the cat/quilt combination. One more and you could frame the four together. =)
