Appliqued Cat Quilt

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Fancy Cats Link to website or photo 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.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton fabric and DMC cottons

Q&A with Beth245

SandiePink asked:
This is SSSOOOOO Cute! Is the 'yarn' in the border done by hand or by machine? Great Job Beth!
Beth245 answered:
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.
