Under the Jellicle Moon

I finally named my cat quilt and the quilting on it is done - by a very wonderful quilter named Georganna Hawley.  She custom quilted the entire thing with different motifs for every kitty.  I had to photograph it today without eyes because I needed to submit it to Road to California by the 1st to be juried in.  The kitties will have eyes very soon.

It still needs to be trimmed and bound too, but this is essentially it.  Making this quilt has been an exquisite journey for the past year.  I've loved every minute of it!

Here's a detail shot of one of the kitties showing off some of the great quilting:




Wish me luck with the jury process for Road...

  2. Oh I wish I could say I designed all the blocks. This was a pattern that I purchased from The Stitchin Post in Oregon. 'Folk Art Cats' by John Simpkins. (http://www.stitchinpost.com/quiltkits/folkartcats.html) I made several alterations to the pattern however. Most of these were minor, one was rather major.
