Applique Kitty Going to a Round Robin
I've been wanting to make an applique and embroidery project for a while, so here is my first attempt! I love how the little applique kitty came out! I have to admit, the embroidery isn't that great. And the applique needs a LOT of work! I hope my friend Carol, who is an applique professional does not look too closely! Maybe she can give me a few tips the next time I see her!
This really cute pattern is from Lynette Anderson. It's a block-of-the-month that I bought last year. It has cats in some of the blocks and dogs in others. I hope now that I've tried one block that I will attempt to make a few more (and get better at my technique!)
Next time I make this block I will use a lighter fabric for the appliqued kitty. Because the fabric is dark, you can't really see his face very well.
These little kitties are going to be part of a Round Robin challenge in my quilt group. Each person submits a quilt square and every month a different person takes it home to add borders and more to it. I can't wait to see what it will look like in June when I get it back!
