Super Secret Project complete

A very dear online friend  lost her beloved cat Ms. Admiral a while back.  I wanted to do something special for her so I 'stole' many shots off her blog & printed them off on silk.  I then set them in lovely, rich florals.   

Here is a shot of Ms. Admiral enjoying her CatNip quilt from 'Her Hero' Ms. Stella O'Houligan. 
 



Here is the quilt I made & sent to Carole.


 The photo below is my favorite of Ms. Admiral. 
She was so lovely
 the solids are the Japanese fabrics I talked about in the previous post.
Ms. Admirals photo below is the largest one.  It is the full 8 1/2" x 11" size.
 I stitched Mo Chroi (which is My Heart in Irish).  I had fun free motion quilting in all the flowers and lillies of the valley (remembrance)

I had fun placing the bird pieces. 

And the back:


 This was her blog header.  Isn't it just darling!
 It was challenging to piece it all together but ultimately fun and I think all the images worked well. 
* the silk sheets were backed with fusible interfacing prior to piecing with the cottons.

  1. I and Angel Admiral are deeply grateful and always will be. As her mom, I have had tears running since I opened this package and saw this work of art. I feel such gratitude I have a difficult time finding the words to express it.

    Much love and thank you always,

    Carole and Angel Admiral and Katie Isabella.

  3. That is stunning. M is not very good at sewing, so she can't even imagine how you print pictures on silk. You are one talented human and M wishes she had half your talent. It is the most beautiful quilt we have ever seen. A true work of original art!
