Cat and Mouse Quilt

Cat and Mouse Quilt

Much delayed post on the cat and mouse quilt that I made last year for the other brother’s baby. Their first 2 babies are fuzzy and meow, and the human baby was born in the year of the Rat, so they thought it would be cute to have something with both represented.
