(cat patterns and cat information)
 

Hi there!  I'm Sunny, the little kitten who was named Sundrop because I sort of looked like the rainbow kitten in Sandy's business logo.  I'm almost 8 years old now so I'm not really a kitten anymore, but I'm still very small and look like a kitten compared to my adopted brothers and sisters who are all bigger than me.  I wonder if being named after a cartoon-like kitten somehow stunted my growth?  Whatever the reason, it's okay because I get a lot of extra attention from Sandy's friends because I'm so small.

Sandy gives me extra attention, too. She designed a line of Christmas applique blocks featuring me!  Some of my siblings get into the act, too, but I'm the star!  Two of the blocks are shown below.

Using Sunny the Kitten in a Sampler

The simple applique pattern of me can be used as a sub-unit in many traditional pieced blocks.  Here are a few examples:
quilt blocks

I think cats are the best critters, of course, but the other Sundrop Critters can be used in the same manner.  So the next time you feel like doing a sampler project, consider adding a Critter to each block.

This modified Bear's Paw block (Sandy calls it Kitty Claws) is a great way to use any of the critters that have paws or claws!  The traditional Bear's Paw block also looks terrific.

The King's Crown block is also great for framing your favorite appliqued critter blocks.
