When I finished this extra colorful purple and orange quilt I was a little worried that it was just too much. I was surprised at how bold the colors were together and thought Oh Heavens to Betsy – What have I done?! So when my friend Sondra was getting ready to start the quilting, my only request to her was to see if she could tone it down somehow! Sondra is such an amazing quilter. Since the colors seemed very Halloween-ish, she decided to quilt in a few cats and a mouse. It really made the quilt lots of fun and while the quilt is quite purple and orange-y, it is now much better!
This is my favorite kitty 🙂
And then my little photo-bomber!
Another quilted kitty – much easier to see in person, but you can kind of get the gist of it.
More detail of the front.
The whole quilt after Sondra did the quilting.
The idea and block pattern came from Camille Roskelley’s book and is the “Retro” block.
