Just because so many quilters seem to like cats, here is Catvent, a quilt-along from Elizabeth Hartman at Oh Fransson! that might interest you. Scroll down to 29th November for the first post.
It is planned as one small pieced block each day during December, but it will remain on the blog so that you can pick it up later if life is too busy now. Maybe during January if you are in Australia and are lucky enough to have a long summer break?
