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.
