Another gift for someone

I finally gave my last gift from xmas. This wall quilt was really hard to keep a secret cause I had fun doing the stitching, and its so playful. This was givin to a fellow cat lover, who also owns a mostly black cat. I got some inspiration from sifting through the blog The Free Motion Quilting Project for the variety of stitches. Also remembering the natural direction of the coat of a cat also helps.

And this next pic is the closeup of the stitching. I tried to get some of the background stitches to come thorugh in the photo as well because im quite happy how it turned out.

I used some polyester thread for the backgrounding, and multicolored rayon for the fur on the cat. I used clear nylon on the swirls on the side of the border because I didn't want to cover over the pattern on the fabric.

This will also be cross posted to my quilt-a-long blog.
