That Cat! Wallhanging

Hello and welcome back!

Today I'm thrilled to share with you my most recently finished project - my That Cat wallhanging (pattern featured in McCall's Quick Quilts).

This project went together so quickly and easily, even despite the half inch wide black grid requiring precis piecing.  It's very striking (please ignore the hideous wallpaper from the previous owners) and I love the rich oranges - it makes me happy every time I look at it.

I put my own little twist on the project with the cat's collar.  In the original project, it's an orange fabric strip but I decided I wanted something a bit more witch-y so I used a metallic silver ribbon and then sewed on a silver and rhinestone star-shaped pendant for a little sparkle and bling.

I shared this project recently at my guild's show and tell and it was very popular and well received.  I've sent a photo off to McCall's Quick Quilts and fingers crossed it might be featured in a future magazine - we'll see.
