Please accept this photo of my miniature quilt with both a cat and a parakeet. I made this 12″ by 10″ wall hanging from a pattern by Aniko Fehrer. She called for the cat to be looking at a butterfly, but I fussycut a parakeet from fabric and appliqued that on instead.

This quilt was made and quilted by me. I did the thread painting on the kitty and the free motion quilting on the background as a relatively new machine quilter, having just recently purchased a sewing machine that could handle such stitching!

    The bright green parakeet is the perfect foil to the black and white kitty. They both look so realistic.

  3. I just love the drama in sheila’s quilt. We know what that cat wants! It would be a great conversation piece for hanging anywhere. Her detailed work is outstanding!
