She has a love for cats so it was easy deciding what to make.
I love this paper pieced pattern from Six White Horses and the pattern is available on Craftsy~ Whiskers. The first time I made this was for my sister, ( Pillows for Christmas ). I knew one day I would try it again!
Plus, it was the chance to practice a little free motion quilting! I used a bright yellow for the whiskers, Denyse Schmidt Posie (from my secret stash) for the cat and cream background. I added a white border to make it an 18" x 18" pillow.
This was my second attempt at a hidden zipper. It wasn't as successful as my first. Not sure what the deal was, but I tried!! (the third time was so much better). Sorry Anne!! Just don't look too closely at the zipper please.
What's a birthday without a birthday card?! I cute, quick and fun way to wish someone special a very Happy Birthday!
