I have been working on the center for my traveling quilt this past week.
The cat, Jack, is all paper pieced.
I used a pattern from Make Modern magazine issue 5.
The cat fabric background is by Jodie Ric Rack of Ella Blue Fabrics and
no I do not know the exact name.
Here you can see my progress.
I really did NOT like that light orange dot so I replaced it out and replaced it.
I am much happier with this version for sure. Cole thinks it is alright too.
This is how it turned out when it was all finished.
I could not be happier with this!
You guys probably don't really remember Jack,
but the tip of his tail was lighter than the rest of him so I made this tail tip lighter too.
Keeping with the geometric theme, I used the mixed blue for the base and
proposed to use the V and Co geometric prints for the letters.
Originally, I thought about paper piecing them but in the end this was faster and
I could control the letter placement.
I found an alphabet online (free, and no I don't remember the name)
and enlarged the letters to work in this piece.
I used all my favorite Lizzy House prints from her Whisper Pallette
for the backgrounds of the letters.
I still need to fuse the letters down and then stitch around them and make sure they are all the same distance from the bottom.
This was just a rough try to see how it looked.
I could not be happier with how it is turning out and can't wait
to send it to my friends to add more cat stuff!
