Fall Cat

I started this fall kitty last weekend and I've delivered it all completed to the LQS for making into kits (click on the picture to get a closer view). I ws a bit nerves about picking fabrics that I knew would be made into a kit (what if I'm the only one that likes it...eek...the shop would be stuck with kits that don't sell), I think the kitty turned out pretty cute. It's a small little wallhanging and I had fun making her. I did a "big stitch" quilting and freezer paper applique. If this kit interests you then go to this web site and ask for Meow at the Moon kit, Jenny would be happy to send to you.

The red vines hanging on my fence around the kitty are actually part of the vines coming from the garage. See the picture below of the garage, the kitty picture was taken in the far back cover. When the leaves get a bit redder I'll show another picture.
Another fabric basket for the Halloween season, these are fast to make. Check out the tutorial here.

That is the cutest wall hanging for this season that I have seen yet! I went to the web site and she does not have it posted yet. Will there be a pattern available outside of the kit? I usually like to pick out my own fabrics just because I like some different from everyone elses.

Dawn said...

My comment/qustion is the same as Teresa's. Is there a way to order the pattern w/o purchasing the kit? It is wayyyy cute!

How cute! I love big stitching. thanks for the tutorial bag link - I plan to try it soon.

The cat kit should certainly sell. I'm like the others who would like to know if the pattern can be purchased without the fabric kit, as I too, like to select my own fabrics.

Love your pretty fall vines and the kitty quilt. Cute bag, too. Enjoyed the quilt show that you shared here. A lot of talent out there, huh?

Judy said...

I think you picked out the BEST fabrics! They are adorable as is the quilt. It's fantastic! The stitching just about makes it...just perfect!

Sherry said...

Your Fall Cat quilt is so cute! I'm curious though, why do all the fall/halloween patterns I see or have made have a crescent moon for harvest moon. I thought harvest moon was a full moon? I might be wrong. I've never checked it out, just something I've been pondering.

What a great garage . . . that vine is just gorgeous. I think I could happily turn that building into a quilting room - and never come out!

Lovely little wall hanging and I just love the colours of the leaves
at fall over there - daughter and I collected many one year we were over there, but of course we couldn't bring them back into Australia because of strict quarantine rules!
Hugs - Lurline.
