I loved this wall hanging for several reasons:
I’m a big fan of Kristin’s patterns (she and I share similar tastes),
I’m a big fan of cats (I have three!),
and I’m a big fan of bow ties (thanks to the show Doctor Who).
How could I not make this quilt?
The wonderful thing about this project is it’s so quick to make. The applique patterns are provided already reversed for fusible applique, which is my favorite method—you get instant results. A bit of embroidery detail gives our feline his Cheshire cat-like smile and staring eyes.
As always, Kristin’s instructions are clear and easy to follow making this Halloween project more “treat’ than ‘trick” (the pinwheels are the trickiest part of the whole project) so even a beginning quilter can make this and be delighted with the results.
Now I’ve come to the absolute hardest part of this whole thing—deciding who is going to get this little beauty: my son whose nickname is “Boo”? my granddaughter who will be 2 ½ next Halloween? or me?
