FO catchup and gratuitous cute cat

Despite the fact that I only finished the one quilt last year [ at a quarter to midnight on New Year's Eve ] I totally failed to show you documentary proof of same.

So here 't'is:
It doesn't have a name yet, and isn't from a pattern per se, but is the latest in a long, long line of quilts made using my friend Anjii' Solomon's ever-so-clever Angle technique.*

The top was made in '05 or '06 as an extra class sample
but I only just got around to having it quilted late last year
and as it ain't a quilt 'til it's quilted, I'm claiming it as a 2009 quilt.

and THIS little sleeping bag was a really quick crochet project back in April, before I found out that Noah was going to be such a ... substantial ... birth weight

The pattern is a freebie from Sue Thompson
I did modify a bit by tapering the sleeves and doing a gentle increase at the sides of the bag/skirt portion, but nothing too drastic.

and finally, the gratuitous gorgeous feline is my grandkitten Suki

I see a medeival secret garden in that quilt.

The quilt is beautiful, and the sleeping bag looks good too.
The quilt reminded me of something but I couldn't put my finger on it until I read Caprifool's comment. That's exactly what it reminds me of!

I think Bengt has named the quilt for me ... how does Secret Garden grab everyone ?

Secret garden sounds good.

Nice pic of Suki in 'her' chair too.

I loved those sleeping bags when the girls were babies. You always knew they were covered.

When I hear "possum" I get a picture of big teeth and ugly fur. Your cowl is so soft and lovely. I wouldn't tell anyone it was possum.

Secret garden is a great name for it, I immediately thought of an English garden when I saw it. Lovely.

The sleeping bag looks great - dit it fit?

I bought yarn (before GS#1 was born) to knit a sleeping bag with hood which DD chose. Being born in February, I thought there'd be no rush but he grew so quickly and doesn't like being over-heated. DD decided a sleeping bag (for newborns - 6 months) wasn't necessary! So I have 8 balls of Bendi Classic 8ply (4 Turquoise, 1 each of four different browns) to find a new project for! ;-(
