Felix (the cat) Quilt

 One final quilt before we leave for NC next week.  
Another pattern test for Meags and Me called Felix.

It used an interfacing grid by TenSisters.
I've used a Quilt Smart grid like this to make the Mondo Bag.
It certainly made the assembly quick and easy.

I cut 2.5" squares and fused them to the grid. 
I sewed horizontal rows on the pre-printed line, then of the vertical line.
I sewed the panels together per the pattern and added the applique.
Voila, finished!
Well almost, HAHA.
I did have to do some stitching around the fusible applique and 
then hand embroider the faces on the cat and spider.
This would make a super easy gift for someone.
You might need to pick this pattern up.

You can see the grid here.
Cole was "helping" me sew.

This is the cat and spider before I did their faces.

You can see the embroidered faces in this photo.

I used the line Kitty Corn for the quilt.
I think it would be cute in Spooky and Sweeter too.
Or in any colors, LOL, it's just so cute!
The black on the spider is sparkly and the cat is linen look.
The pattern calls for wool, but I just went with cotton.
They use Soft and Fuse for the fusible so I bought some to try.
With all of those layers,
I think regular fusible would have been almost impossible to hand stitch through.

That's all I have for today. 
 Things will probably be a bit quiet until we get home.
Can't wait to get my hands on that adorable grandson!
