Posts Tagged ‘Around Corners quilt pattern’

A few days ago I finally finished a quilt that I am donating to a cat charity called MEOW Cat Rescue here in the Seattle area.

I quilted the quilt using a pattern called Around Corners. I like the effect of the circles and the loops – to me, it looks like balls of yarn that my cats have been playing with!

I know that the MEOW Cat Rescue people will put this quilt to good use – hopefully as a fund raiser for the great work they do.
