Max & Friends


The 34x34 inch wall hanging was made for cat-loving friends and commemorates their white bob tail cat. It was designed in EQ8 and uses paper-pieced cat silhouette designs by Janeen van Niekerk (purchased on EQ8 store) and slightly modified to bob Max’s tail. It was machine pieced and free-motion quilted by me using some designs inspired by Lori Kennedy. Binding is machine finishing using my signature couched Perle cotton method.
