For the last three + weeks I have been planning and making the Kitty Quilt
The design was all my own making and after drafting a pattern and testing it with an applique to the approval of its recipient, I started on the real thing.
Not wanting the mini applique to go to waste, I whipped it up into a mini bag...to go with the quilt.
So whilst I am finishing up the quilt details, I wanted to share the reason for the quilt::
This (wonderful) painting is of MY BABIES!!!! and I am in. love.
Working with Cassie was a dream. I have loved her work for a while now and often day dreamed about having a custom painting done of my brood.
I sent her photos of each cat along with a brief description of their personality and she nailed each one of them exactly! Rudi on his back, legs akimbo - in tie dye to reflect his laid back personality. (Jay and I have often laughed that if Rudi were a person, he may be a bit of a pot-smoking hippy because he is just so laid back!) Winny in lederhosens because of his Austrian nationality looking a wee-bit arrogant because, well, he is the centre of the world and Kimmie...well she's just our little petite princess :o)
It will go in our newly decorated master bedroom this weekend, so that I will get to stare at it at least twice a day when going to/getting up from bed.
I love it!
