I'm new at this. it's my first posting of any of my stuff... hopefully it turns out OK.


I made this quilt for my mom. it's about 7 1/2' X 6 '. It's Helen Knott's pattern "Let sleeping cats lie" she has a pattern for dogs too.





I appliqued and machine embroidered 48 of these cat heads... i was having dreams of cat heads, lol


the eyes on the mice are beads


i probably could have taken better photos before i gave it away.... but i never think of that until it's to late.
