We received these kitties as a whole cloth with all 4 squares still together and embroidery around all 4 kitties. I brought them home and....
Cut them apart...
Added some sashing...
Added a wider outside border, and started quilting. They already had batting behind each kitty, so by adding a second layer of batting, it made them really puffy!
A simple all over meander in the squares and a spirals in the borders.
I attached the binding by machine and added the hanging loops.
It is 21 x 21. Small, but cute!!

What an adorable wall hanging! I can totally see this hanging in a young girls room. It is quite sophisticated. Love that you chose a dark sashing and border. Really highlights all that embroidery work. Well done!
Oh, I love them so much - it looks like your whipped it up in no time.
I agree the wall hanging is cute. You've done an excellent job in finishing someone else's work. You made a great choice of fabric and quilting pattern.
Very cute indeed! xx
What a unique challenge, and you made an exquisite design with them, Vicki :)
That is cute and so clever! I'm not sure I would have thought of that idea upon seeing that cloth. I'll be looking at things like that differently from now on. I love that you can do the quilting on your sewing machine! I really should look into whether or not I can do that on mine or getting a newer and nicer machine. That looks like SO much fun and very rewarding.
Those kitties are purring a sweet song, Miss Vicki!!
Very cute! Would be perfect for any cat lovers. I know a few person who would love to have it!
What a perfect wall hanging! Love the embroidery on those kitties!
Seriously cute kitties. Somebody put a lot of work into them.
