I have a quilt that I made for the Moda Bake Shop that was near and dear to my heart. 
 It was my first submission to the MBS and I was beyond thrilled that they accepted my quilt!
You can find the tutorial right here
 I was working on it like mad to finish the binding while I was away on vacation
 hoping to get the perfect cover shot. 
 I managed to find the perfect place and got a great shot with only the second photo.

I used my friend's long arm to lay in the beautiful feathers in every triangle, 
then used my Bernina to do all the straight lines on the inside and in the border.  
The circles in the inner border were done on the long arm also.
 It took me about 14 hours to do all the quilting!

This quilt is even more special to me because it is the last completed quilt I have with photos of 
my best friend, Jack.  

My Jack was in kidney failure and I he is now waiting for me on the Rainbow Bridge.
I miss  him every single day!

Jack NEVER left my side when I was home.  
He slept curled up in the crook of my neck or side every night.
He purred us both to sleep. 
This quilt will always remind me of him.

This is my favorite photo of Jack.  

I love you my Boo Boo Kitty and I miss you so much!

This is a great way to use HSTs. Love the fabric. But it is your quilting that really makes this stand out. It looks amazing and I can well imagine it took all those hours to quilt. Wonderful!

Sweet quilt and stunning quilting!

Beautiful cat. My own orange puffball recently passed on so I'm very sympathetic to your missing him. Cats are awesome people, aren't they? :-)
