Whiskerless

I have been SOOO excited to finish this quilt!!!  The moment I put her in the washing machine, I realized that I still hadn't added the whiskers.  Drat.

And my cat was not a helpful model in the photo shoot.

Get back here!

(But if you click to enlarge you can see the 4 different quilting textures.)
Seriously??? Like you can't sit still for 5 seconds.


(Oh, but notice the texture of the hand quilting behind her butt.)

Can you find the secret dragonfly?

Well, at least THIS cat does what she's asked to do. 

I guess I need to go back and add whiskers and tack down the recalcitrant leaf edges before I can declare completion.

Wow! I really like your finished quilt. The colors and quilting are great.
Why do cats only sit still when you want them to move?lol I feel your frustration with the photo shoot.

Lovely! The cat is a stunner, and if you wouldn't have told us, I would never had realized that the whiskers are missing. And I just love your 3D-leaves!!

I just *love* this quilt!!! The circles on her are marvelous. Makes me smile - we've got a calico in our house.
