I heard that. You gasped. I'm sure of it. "What?!! Not ANOTHER cat!!" umm, well, yes, it is another cat. Only it's not my cat. Yeah, I know. You've heard that before as well.
Yesterday, in the applique class, I was absolutely captivated by Nancy's use of fabric. It reminds me very much of Ruth McDowell, and is a skill I'd love to eventually acquire. For now, I simply appreciate what others can do.
But this one quilt, oh my. I took multiple pictures, none of them could do it justice.
"Do you ever sell your work?" "Yes, but I don't have much with me..." "How about this one?" She looked unsure, quoted a price, and I said, "SOLD!" before she could change her mind.
Mittens now lives at my home. Mittens used to live in Nancy's neighborhood. Images of him can be seen in many of her quilts. She said that this was her first memorial quilt for Mittens - she bought some of the fur fabric, especially to make a Mittens quilt, without knowing that earlier that day he'd gone out to the garden and breathed his last.
It's obvious that this cat was loved - you can see it in the attention given to every little detail.
Anyway, I thought you'd like to meet him. He's my newest cat. ;)
