Isn't this cat on the computer the cutest?  This is a 16" block offered by Sindy Rodenmayer on her website Fat Cat Patterns.  Sindy has some of the nicest block patterns and the best thing is they are all FREE!!
Once again this shows the generosity of the quilters' spirit.
This is Sindy's current Block of the Month called Baltimore Bliss.  Every month you can download a block from this beautiful quilt. I'm about to start this myself.  She has loads of designs and you really need to check out the "Family Dirt" section, it's really a riot.  So, I recommend you hop on over to her site, it really is a great visit.

Since my blog is Quilts and Cats I felt it only appropriate that I allow the cats to pick the lucky winner.  Besides, I couldn't get the random number generator to work!  So we cut 44 pieces of purple paper and numbered and folded each one.  (Click on photos for larger view.)
With a little bit of catnip "incentive" Muffin and Jelly Bean decided to check it out....however....
They weren't doing very well.  So, along comes Puss and says:  "Hey guys, this is how you do it!"
and promptly knocks out a winner.  (I know it's small, but it's there on the table!)

Now, I know you probably can't see this very well, but it's lucky #16....Drumroll please......
Congratulations to Judy of Sew Fun Quilts.  I think you're going to love this software.  Please email me at with your address so I can mail it out to you.

I'd like to thank all those who entered and left such great comments and compliments.  Also welcome, to the new followers....I hope you will enjoy my blog.
