Black Tie and Tails

What a fun quilt to do!  It was designed for the National Qult Museum New Quilts from and Old Favorite.  The challenge block was bow tie.  Once this idea came to me, I was able to get it done quilckly.  I purchased drapery fabric and quilted it prior to adding the cats.  I machine stitched the cats on and embroidered each face before I put it on.  The one final part was to add shocking pink piping to the binding for a more 'formal' look.  All of this was done tongue in cheek.  If only all quilts were this fun.  It received a 4th place and has been travelling for a couple of years.
