Well winter is on its way here in Maine. All the leaves have fallen and they are all a brown tan color. While taking my cat for a walk in our back yard she started jumping and playing with a pile of leaves. Why not do a quilt with a cat surrounded by leaves peaking thru? Looking thru my photo’s of our cat I found one that I thought would work great.
The photo was enhanced with my Photoshop program. I then copied the photo onto a special treated fabric that I could print on with my printer. I went outside and gathered some leaves and placed them around the photo to see how I like it!
I liked the way it looked so I went ahead and went thru my fabric stash to find a lot of different ones of brown and tan. I had this one piece of batik fabric that went from light green to dark green for the background. I also decided to add trees to the background.
I am still trying to decide whether to add some more leaves or not. Sometimes I have to leave a project for a day and walk away to come back to it to see what else needs to be added before I start to quilt it. I think I might end up adding more leaves, making them smaller and trailing into the distance.
Once this is quilted it will look totally different. I plan on adding some paint also to give more dimension to the trees and the leaves. More leaves or not? That is the question!
Sale still going on in my shop! Stop on by if you get a chance!
