Cats at play - Stretch! - Done!

I've finished my first kit! Most of this was done via Appliqué. I had a bit of problems with my machine with tension, so the backside looks really....really messy, but the top looks fantastic! Im happy with it. For the designs in thread, I just went with my gut. I didn't really plan it out. I also had a hard time finding any thread I might have had to match the background color, but I did manage to find some.

So, this is the full quilt. I also added some buttons that came with the kit, but I also added a few of my own charms that would match up. One of them is even a bell from a Lindt bunny.




Here's a closeup of the fishbowl....



And a closeup of the kitty and collar.



Next up....I aim to finish the Tetris and Crazy Quilts.
