Kitty in Garden (12â€ x 8.5â€)
The scraps from the Love My Bike quilt were shuffled around my studio for a few weeks.
Blue and green flowers
Gray and white strips
Scraps of orange and pink that I cut, auditioned and rejected
Last weekend they came together with scraps of blue from the Almost Ticker Taper quilt, a few stems from green scraps and the shape of a cat.
Fuse it all together, make a quilt sandwich and have fun adding lots of free motion stitching. Dig out scraps of pre-made bias binding and an art quilt honoring my gray cat is done.
I used white as the backing fabric so I could see the results of my free motion stitching better. The stitches werenâ€™t all great, but I canâ€™t get better unless I keep practicing.
