Spooky Cat Quilt

I have the privilege of showing you guys a quilt I machine quilted for Anita last week.
Please note: I didn't piece this quilt. I only quilted it.  I don't want to ever appear to take credit for someone else's work.
 Isn't it beautiful! She brought me such a cool piece to work on.  It was quite inspiring for me.
We decided on green thread that would match the wool eyeball applique.  Since the background varied a lot, I thought the green would be a happy medium.  Turns out it was a good choice!
I showed her a quick mockup of some quilting designs I thought would be nice for the background of the kitties.  The left is snail shells, and the right is eyeballs.
We went with the eyeballs, and as I was basting it, I decided to ask if we could do spiderwebs on the border.  And she thought that would be nice, so we were off and running!
Here's a closeup of one of the corners.  You can see that the eyeballs looked neat in the background, but I am awfully partial to the spiderwebs!

I liked how the green really popped on the different colors.
 The green and purple combo was my favorite.
 and I liked how the spiderwebs could be entangled in the corner applique.
All in all, it was fun.
and here's the finished piece.


  1. I LOVE IT! The spider webs are such a great addition, and those kitty cats are spook-tacular. (Get it? Okay, I'm a dork!) I would love to hang that piece on my wall in October.
