What are you most proud of? That this is the first hand appliqued quilt I have ever done and that it turned out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you haven't done hand blanket stitch before practice on scraps till you get it right. Some people like to use a contrasting thread when doing the blanket stitch but for this one I think the white on the white cats was preferable. I used visoflex to do the applique - be careful that you use a iron protector sheet so your iron doesn't get the sticky substance on visoflex stuck to your iron.

This is SSSOOOOO Cute! Is the 'yarn' in the border done by hand or by machine? Great Job Beth!

Hi Sandie - thank you - the border is done with DMC variegated thread by hand. I am a very inexperienced embroiderer but I hope it has turned out okay.

It is beautiful, Beth. You did a great job with the embroidery, I love the funny pattern. I am sure your friend will be very happy...

Thanks Sylvie - we both have cats and I think she will have a giggle or too with this one.
