I got some fabric given to me by a Facebook friend. She brought over a couple of boxes of fabric and left it on my front porch. I found it and sorted. It had some unfinished blocks and some cheater pillows that were printed. One day I had nothing to do so I made them up. I quilted the applique cats and made a pillow out of it, Then I cut out the shaped pillows and sewed and stuffed. I sent some to my niece that needed a boost. It was fun doing them! Oh, The mat is made with fishing fabric. It is for a friend that has a fishing cabin.
