Fast and Fun

It seems like the projects I've been working on lately are the lengthy ones that don't give quick results and sometimes a girl just needs some completion satisfaction. Although I did just finish my map quilt, I don't feel like that gave me the satisfaction I was wanting. I had been thinking about that map quilt for two months, so I felt like I worked on it that long.

So after the map quilt was done and in between steps on the cat triptych, I made a mini cat quilt. Ahhh, I feel better now.

Measures approx. 10.5" x 8.25"

Monoprinted, stenciled and stamped background

Flowers are raw-edge appliqued, fused with Mistyfuse

Free-motion machine sketching with black thread
and painted with textile paint

View of the back.  Still need to add a label.
I need to come up with a name for this mini quilt. Sometimes a name will just pop into my head right away and sometimes it feels like such a struggle to name a quilt. Anybody have any suggestions? This little guy is available for adoption and I will eventually get him into my Etsy shop. I just haven't gotten around to doing that yet. Perhaps maybe I will enjoy him for a few more days.

And because I haven't yet decided on what colors I want to add to the cat triptych, I started a new project. Photos to come, hopefully soon.  A girl can't have only one project going on at a time, you know!
