Just finished a quilt begun in 2013....talk about the Slow Fiber movement... but now the work has a binding, hanging sleeve, and a good place in DH's home office. We are a family of ailurophiles.
The impetus for this quilt was an old fabric, featuring stylized cat face designs in red and gray, found on ebay. This fabric can be seen in the large blocks bordered in black in the quilt. Also used is a recent Michael Miller fabric based on the designs of 1950's artist Tammis Keefe. I had enough of the old fabric to make three of these quilts, sort of a limited edition; the other two quilts were given to veterinarians.

Red, white and black is a timeless quilt color scheme. The quilt was fun to work on, although I went a bit overboard with the hand-quilting.
