2 Monday Finishes

I'm crossing 2 more UFOs off my list!

"Cats Dressed in Hats" is made from a pattern I call Noodle Recipe. The pieced 8" finished blocks are made from 2.5" strips sewed together, cut into 4.5" segments and sewed together in units of 4. I'm sure these blocks have a name, if you know it please tell me in a comment.
I pieced the backing from yellow and white gingham flannel and the top strip of novelty flannel. Cute and cozy~!

I quilted it using white Auriful with walking foot waves.
"Cats on Skis" is also made using my Noodle Recipe, except that I flipped the color placement on some of the blocks to create 2 sets of blocks used in alternating rows for a different look.
It has a pieced flannel backing of 3 fabrics.

I used white Aurifil and (my favorite!) walking foot waves for the quilting.
I'm up to 15 UFO Finishes for 2013! Both of these quilts will be donated to Project Linus.
