12 Days of Catmas

This fun wall hanging quilt evolved from shopping during a trip to a quilt show back in 2003. If you haven't met my mom, all you really need to know is that she *is* the crazy cat lady.

We found this fabric, all cats in groupings that are plays on verses from 'The Twelve Days of Christmas', like 'Ten Toms a-Peeping' or 'A Tabby-cat in a Pear Tree'.

The base of the quilt is a log cabin wreath, and the motifs are appliqued on using fusible web and then machine stitched down. The quilting was all done with embroidery thread to give a little shimmer to the finished product.

It only took me 5 years to actually get it finished- not too shabby, right? =)
