Kitty in the Window!
Thanks to the kind comments on Step Out Of The Box! I worked intensely for over a month on that quilt and I was "dog" tired! So I decided to chase a cat! :)
Seriously, this quilt was brought to me by a customer during the process of the auction quilt. She said she could wait until the end of September so I told her I would fit it in between Step Out Of The Box and other customer quilts I still need to get done. It was a magnificent break; love this little quilt (even if I'm not a cat person)!
So Kitty in the Window measures approximately 20" x 26" and is a wedding gift for a friend of the owner. I used Aurifil 50 weight thread throughout this quilt in a few different colors.
Here's how I broke it down: first, stitch in the ditch around the designs and then around the inner section and the outer border. Next, background quilting in the blue window and a few way lines across the vase for security.
Then some swirls in the top of the cat to give a little texture and straight lines with ruler on the window sill to add depth.
And finally, I LOVE FEATHERS! So yes, feathers around the top and two sides in a light rose shade and then on the bottom in a light blue.
Absolutely love this little quilt!
So have a great weekend. Link up with some of the spots on my sidebar and as always, Crazy Mom Quilts here:http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com
