Garfield Applique Quilt

Mom's been very busy the last month or two wrapping up some of her quilt projects. Here's the Garfield Applique Quilt she is finishing up for my cousin Steffie (who I don't think reads this blog, but if you see her, shhh!)

For this type of quilt, she "fussy cuts" images from an existing fabric, in this case one that had large pictures of Garfield and Odie, and then hand appliques them into the center of the quilt block. You can click on any of the images for a better view.




Two out of two Maine Coon cats approve of this quilt.

I also never consider my quilts approved of until my cat starts walking all over it.

I actually had cat approval even before it was quilted. The quilt was rolled onto the frame, all set to start the machine quilting . I thought I had closed the door but the kitties got in anyway. I found them, not once, but three times, sitting on the quilt like a hammock! Of course at the time I was furious because it meant re -loading the quilt again - three times!
