Charlie is actually the name of my step-daughter Brittany's kitten and he is just the cutest thing in the world. Brittany's roommate and best friend Camille loves that kitten so I thought making her a pillow with Charlie on it would be a perfect gift.
|This is Charlie! Isn't he adorable?!|
I got the pattern over at Quiet Play - I just love her paper-piecing patterns! I used scraps for the cat, some Kona for the background (Bahama Blue and another blue - sorry don't remember the exact colour) and some Zen Chic for the border.
For the quilting, I used the walking foot and quilted straight vertical lines about 1/2" apart using Aurifil white thread.
The finished size is 18" square.
For the backing, I chose a brown print I had in my stash and made a simple envelope closure.
I'm super happy with this pillow and I hope Camille loves it too! Now I can't wait until Christmas morning!
I will be linking up this small finish at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Quilt Matters for TGIFF.
