Once upon a time ago, Holly sent me this lovely gift. Since she use a Laurel Burch print in the border, I knew that I wanted to at least use a Laurel Burch print for the binding. The minor problem with that plan, my collection of Laurel Burch prints consisted of parts of fat quarters - meaning I had already chopped out a charm or 2 from the cat quarter. Not that any of those would have been chosen for the binding anyway. (I chose a cat print for binding once & have "regretted" it ever since...)
Several months later, the "last" Laurel Burch cat fabric line was released. (L.B. passed away, but I kind of think tkat her estate will rerun some of her ideas...) I had to have some to finish Holly's lovely quilt!
I bought 2 panels & some yardage for the back & a nice piece for the binding.
Here is the result.
The whole quilt (with the binding attached, but not finished.)
The pieced corner blocks.
One of the hand embroidered & hand crayoned cats. I am happy with how the long armer traced around the embroideries & appliques. (I was at a loss on how to quilt this...)
The hand appliqued mouse.
The back (I tried to be artsy with the yellow & stingy with the cats...) At least when I lable it by writing directly on it with a pigma pen, it will show up on the yellow! Yes, I do lable like that - often!
Thanks again Holly! I still love it, especially the part about how I don't have to make it!
