My local modern quilt guild adopts a charity each year to whom we gift handmade quilts. This year's charity is The House Next Door, an organization that counsels children who have been abused. At their first counseling appointment, they receive a quilt. Here is my contribution (and the first of my 4th quarter finishes) --
The cats were part of a much smaller panel so I decided to cut out the squares and sash them to make it a bigger quilt. When I first started quilting, back in 2013, I purchased a few yards of an adorable fish print. It was one of those impulse buys that just sat in my sewing room until now. I thought it was the purr-fect backing for this quilt.
It's hard to see any of the quilting detail in the orange border but I promise you, it's there. I photographed this quilt at my workplace and it was really sunny when I did it. The front of the building is floor to ceiling windows. Next time I need to try an overcast day or in the evening.
