Cats and Dogs Fabric

I have a limited number of kits with the "cats and dogs" fabric from this year's "challenge quilt" at the PL conference in July 2011. If you'd like a package of this fabric in order to make a quilt to donate to Project Linus of East TN, please send me an email with your mailing address at Limited quanities so first come, first served.
