Start of the Cat
I am doing Michelle Verbeeck's Cat Sack Class.
This is a wonderful, colourful and funky project.
These are the colours I started out thinking I would use.
As you can see by the layout one 2 of them changed.
I was really excited about it when I saw all the pieces pinned together awaiting quilting.
There is a lot of quilting in this project and it took quite a while but the class isn't rushed and I had plenty of time to keep up.
Once quilted it takes on a character of it's own. It becomes a sturdy piece of fabric and the texture is great.
I used threads for the quilting that matched quite closely but, it would change the look and colour if contrasting thread was used. Next sack forming in my mind.
I love the little points on the front and back. It gives the cat a little tiger feel.
The head was next so watch for that ;0)
