I participated in this amazing swap.
When you joined you were assigned a secret partner to make a mini quilt and
one other handmade item for.
I knew immediately what I wanted to do for my partner.
Although she has 7 cats so that made things challenging.
I decided to use the cat pattern my friend Kim and I are working on.
She drafted the pattern from an antique quilt and I designed the quilt around that.
Enough chit chat, want to see it?
I love how this turned out. I made one cat that looks like each of her cats!
Her all orange cat (like my Jack)
Her black and white (like my Mosen)
Loved those mice on his bow
Her orange and white (like my Aiden)
Her Calico (like Autumn and Hallie)
Her all black
Her all gray
Her gray and white.
I made a template for the cat face quilting which turned out excellent!
I used the Cotton and Steel cats for the back.
We had to send another hand made item and I made this pouch, using the Bee In My Bonnet tutorial.
I received a FANTASTIC mini quilt from my partner.
Found out she lives in the same city as my daughter in NC!! Small world.
It's my JACK!!!! Speaking of which, a pale orange tabby showed up in my driveway yesterday afternoon, just like Jack did.
Not sure if he is a stray or a neighbor cat.
I also received all these goodies!
Look at that Raccoon pouch!! I love me some Tula. And that FQ of aqua cat fabric? Fantastic!!!
All in all this was a GREAT swap experience!!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts finish it up Friday.
