Cat of nine tales quilt

Just to show I have finished at least one quilt in my lifetime...here's the quilt I made for my sister for her 40th.


I chose a combination of white with silvery grey-blue fabrics for the machine-pieced background and each cat is individually hand appliqued and embroidered.

I cannot claim credit for the glorious machine quilting - Jeanie, you are a star. As a result, the back of this quilt is as beautiful as the front with different free motion quilting in each of the 9 windows. This one below even has a ball of string quilted into it for the resident cat to play with. Just perfect!









I really enjoyed making this quilt, and it was great to be able to give something made with so much love to my big sis.
