Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival 2007

Whiskers This quilt is called Whiskers, by Ann Fahl. I had seen several of her quilts on Flickr & Webshots - it was fun to see the collection in real life! The black & white kitty is Oreo & I can not choose a favorite... So I will share them all!

I love how the backgrounds are scrappy and different. I also love how the quilting both in the background and as cat fur is different. & Finally I love how the cats are created differently - some appear to be thread work, while others are photo transfer or applique.

Thanks for sharing a great series of cat quilts! it's about the closest thing I can get to a cat! I'm playing a bit of catch up, sorry..wanted to tell you I love your "ping" project. I love English PP too--I'm working on one called Inner City and batiks.

I can se why you couldn't decide. The cats are great and i love her sense of humour.

I kind of buzzed thru this exhibit - I'm not a huge cat fan but am not surprised that it appeals to you. Her work is very nice.

I saw these in Chicago last fall. Aren't they wonderful! She gives such personality to the cats. A very talented person.

Your photos of the quilt show almost make me feel like I was there, I love the cat quilts (although, look whom I'm telling that to, he-he) especially the one with Black Eyed Susans.
