It Happens!

 Recently I made this as an entry for a book about quotes.  
My quote (I was given to interpret) was the following

Look for and make your opportunities happen; they are not going to come rushing up to your doorstep. But sometimes they'll be looking you right in the face. Harley Brown

Here was my entry (which was not chosen)

The Title is 
'Carpe mures' 
'Sieze the Mice'

His eyes are lampglass.  The flowers are hand embroidered, The mice and background fabrics were made from leftovers of Miss Rowan's quilt. 
This little kitteh quilt wasn't chosen for the book, but that's ok, I can share it with you now. 

The size is 11" x 19" 

I am going to post it up on my Etsy for sale next week however, I'd like to give my cat readers and friends first dibbs :) 

Happy Sewing!

Ms Lee's Quilt Commission Finished

I can now share my recent commission all completed!    This is a queensize quilt.  I had lots of fun putting it together and quilting it.  I also made a 'quiltlet' for King Spitty as well, afterall, of course.

This is Moda's Sweet Serenade line
I created this with 4 jelly rolls
And 8 yards of backing fabric.
I pieced & quilted it entirely with Aurifil 50wt light grey.

I love this sweet print!

I chose a simple large meandering stipple design so as not to interfere with the busy fabrics.

Here's the back

I just got notified that it was delivered!  Hope she likes it. 
Here is the quiltlet I made for King Spitty.  Naturally I quilted this one a lot and took no completed photos of that. DUH!
This measures 36" X 22" approx.  There's no catnip in this one just in case she'd rather use it on a table top.  (or on the wall above the bed)
