Vintage Sunday: Tacky Christmas Kittens!

Vintage Sunday: Tacky Christmas Kittens!

How amazing are these awful Christmas kittens panels?!?! There’s three of them but I do love this kittens-in-a-basket one the best. I mean, what’s more traditionally tacky than kittens in a basket!?

I snapped up these panels from the charity shop a few months ago for the back of my Christmas quilt:

Gigantic Scrappy Christmas Swoon! All ready to put together!

– if you haven’t already caught it on Flickr or Instagram. It’s one single gigantic (60″ square) Swoon block, all made from stash and scraps and just a few purchases to get enough of the right colors.

The top is all sewn now and I’m putting the back together from these ridiculous kittens, some of my low-volume scraps from the front, and that floral vintage sheet above – yes, it really is that bright! I love vintage sheets or fabric so much – and even better if there’s tacky cats involved!
