Here Kitty, Kitty....



This is just a quilt top at the moment, but this handsome feline is destined for our guild's silent auction. Members have been asked to donate a small quilted item to help raise funds at our quilt show. This year the show will be held November 5 & 6 in Ocala, FL.

I chose to make a version of "Stalker" the celery cat which is part of the Garden Patch Cats series from Story Quilts. Helen Knott designed them, and they all have clever names like Eggplant Purr-mesan, or Avocato.


The crazy-pieced border is a variation from the pattern. I keep all my scraps in large plastic zip-top bags, sorted by color. Once I had the blues and greens out, I couldn't put them away, and wound up fusing all sorts of bits to fusible web. Then I cut them into strips. And now... they need a home. Well, we'll see where that goes. But first I need to quilt "Stalker".
