Cat in the woods

    After painting class, I put my snow scene (based on a photo from the Thanksgiving quilt retreat), on a chair. Unfortunately it was the favorite chair of Cassie and she climbed up as usual to nap. It was a big humorous, like she was in the woods. 
The painting looks washed out here from the flash, but you get the idea
     Last week was my baby girl's birthday. She is 28. Yikes, how did that happen? She loves the ADK, so I made her a scene on her card. Batik scraps, heavy weight interfacing, free motion quilting, variegated blue Isacord thread, metallic thread, yarn edging on cardstock. Wouldn't a whole quilt look great like this?

Love the card quilt. Yes, you should make a full sized quilt like this. I'm really attracted to original art quilts. They are so much fun to design and each one is unique.

Since I use heavy weight interfacing for the back, I would have to somehow seam it in order to make a quilt bigger than the width of the interfacing. A seam with no bulk.
