Boy oh boy! Once I made up my mind to do some fun stuff, it sure didn't take me long, huh? Does that tell you that some of this was in my head all along? I'd say!! And guess what? There is more in there!! Lots more! If only I could work faster.....or could send DH away on a short vacation (alone) for a few days (weeks....LOL) This cooking, cleaning and laundry really cramps my style!!
Well anyway....you know the drill. First I start off with a drawing (which I never photographed this time figuring you've seen them all before so why bother?) It's here though. I can't applique without them. The biggest appliques come first, or backgrounds. In this case, it was the cat.
I just knew he/she had to have green eyes. After all, if I remember correctly, all the cats I ever had seemed to have green eyes (or yellow....but I never thought of that color then....ummmm). Then..... NATURALLY...... I had to make the birds.........!!! What's a "mamacjt" applique piece without birds? (At least that's what I've been hearing lately!) I thought pink and green would be fun.
By now I was having a ball!! I already knew what this was going to look like finished and how I would quilt it and bind it. Besides, who can tire of cats and birds together?
So, here are two close-up pictures of the finished piece:
Did you see the little charm on the cat's collar? It says, "Made with Love". I also found a cat charm, but I liked the Made with Love one better.
So here it is, all finished and guess what? It's for sale.......one of a kind, never to be made again!!!
I'm calling it, "Friends". It's 15 1/2 x 22 inches with a sleeve, O ring and dowel and ready to hang. $80 E-mail me if you want it (my info is on the side).......I'll sign it on the back for you!! LOL Oh and....thank you ever so much for all your support! Your comments last time were so heartwarming, and wonderful......I was overwhelmed!! Smooches to you all!!!
