 I had so much fun quilting this awesome cat-themed top this week.  Debbie S. sent in the top back in the Fall and I've been meaning to get to it for way too long.  It's done now and in the stack for the next Covered in Love delivery.

The cat fabric is by Dan Miller and each one is fussy cut.  The white plaid in the snowballs has a nice texture, too.

I stippled in the middle and did a spiral in the red border.  Then in the brown border I quilted the names of many cat coloration and breeds ("Tabby" "Tuxedo" "Maine Coon" "Siamese" etc.)

I also quilted four cats based on this design from the Inbox Jaunt.  Two were more or less the same as the tutorial, then I did one lying and one from the side. The matching thread makes it hard to see all the quilting, so that will be fun for someone to discover.

Thanks to Debbie for the top, Sandra and Gail for backing, and Nicki for binding! Thank you to everyone who continues to support CiL!

Covered in Love is taking a break from the block drives for the next 2 months so I can catch up, but don't go anywhere! I still need your blocks. Check out details HERE.
