Cat and Mice



I just finished this little quilt for Terri Stegmiller's Mixed Media Collage class. It was a LOT of fun to do. I actually drew the cat and mice myself - I didn't use a pattern! And I cut the squares freehand.

I hope to find some time this week to start on lesson 2, which is faux batik, but I'm trying very hard to finish up a quilt that I want to enter in the Oklahoma City Winter Quilt show. The deadline for entries is November 1 - the quilt doesn't have to be completely finished by then, but it does have to be close enough that I can get 2 good photographs of it. And that will be easier if I have it finished so that I can hang it up. I'm getting there - I'm actually pretty close. I'm doing more quilting in this quilt than I've probably done in quilts I've quilted in the past, but I'm quite happy with how it's turning out.

I love it. Doesn't it feel so good when you draw your own pictures so you can say it's all your design?

Very nice cat and mouse quilt - the colors as they come through on the computer look so soft, yet distinct. Great job!
