Big Ass Cat #2

APPARENTLY, one Big Ass cat is not enough for me.

I bought a "Mid-Century Modern Animals" coloring book by Jenn Ski on my Portland trip, and I have been obsessed with making this image into a quilt.

I've planned a couple llama quilts for Baby Girl since she claimed that she wanted to be Llama Hearder when she grew up, but I was never able to sort out the details for a llama quilt that I loved.

Now she wants to be The Crazy Cat Lady.

So much easier.

Today we went to Stitch N Snip in Crouch since they have the best batik selection in the region.

A split background of dark and light purple.  The salmony pink will be all the background fish. These pinks are from my stash.

I need about 50 fish.  God Bless the stash.

I'm not kidding when I say "Big Ass Cat".  Those blue body sections are over 50" wide. Finished quilt will be about 108x80.

 These are the cat body teals.

Lime green eyes and collar.

The geometric details either dark blue or pale blue.

And for my "non-quilty" friends.... This is over $300 worth of gorgeous fabric in these pics.  And I haven't added the batting or backing.

Sssshhhh. Don't tell anyone how much all that fabric costs. It's our little secret!
This is going to be an amazing quilt - I'll enjoy seeing its progress. Have fun!
