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!

    Fantastic! You’d think kittens in a basket couldn’t get any better, but then you spot the teddy bear! Suh-weeeet! ;-) Can’t wait to see it in its final glory…the front square is very, very charming, btw! Chrissie x

    What a sweet kitty panel and I agree there is something really special about vintage fabric and this is going to be one pretty gorgeous quilt!! Love dog in the back watching you, mine sits with me too when I sew, aren’t they just the most loyal friends ever! xox
