Blogger's Quilt Festival - Small Quilt

Fall 2015 with Amy

I would like to thank Amy of Amy's Creative Side for again hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival - a chance to experience Quilt Market and the HoustOn Show as creative Bloggers.  

SMALL QUILT CATAGORY



"Catalicious" is a pattern by Browyn Hayes of Red Brolly Designs and the patterns are still available HERE.  This was a Stitch Along in 2010!  I did all the stitcheries timely and then they got 'misplaced'.  Found and worked up into a quilt top (and I forgot the fabric line) and again 'misplaced'.

The stitcheries were presented as just black floss, but I played with my Pentex fabric pencils, colored floss, and added lots of beads and buttons.




I've owned a lot of tabby furbabies over many years and decided to make all my kitties to represent my wonderful friends over the years.




A few of these fabrics had large flowers, so I used them up in filler star blocks.  This quilt took so long in the making that I had to plan a setting as there was no referrence to that so long ago.  

It was probably good that this sat so long waiting for a finish.  My quilting has improved over the years - or is it because I have gotten braver?  I quilted this on my home machine using my walking foot for the cross hatching of the patchwork and FMQ to fill a number of the blocks and border.


Finished size - 54" x 62"

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
