"Ashley's Bobcat Quilt" by Herbie Morin

My niece started to college this fall. The school mascot is a Bobcat and the colors are black and red.  It was very difficult to find bobcat fabric. After much searching, the one I found was a black drawing on white.

I used fabric crayons to color the cats.  I made a paw print stamp from 3/4 "  foam insulation board. I used fabric paint on the paw print in the center of the log cabin blocks. I put the cats on the border. 

There is a red fabric with tiny black paw prints and a black fabric with  tiny red paw prints.  I used a graduated mostly white to mostly black and the same for red, as in black and white and red all over!

Herbie, What a great gift. Ashley must love it, and what an incredible amount oof work for you to "color" in the Bobcats. You did a great job. I like the fabrics you chose as well. thanks for sharing.

Herbie,

I don't suppose you want to share where you got the bobcat fabric?

I have been searching for some to make a quilt to raffle for my son's school.

Great job on that quilt - your neice will love it and all her friends will be jealous!

How very clever of you to color the bobcat.  I never would have thought of it.  Great quilt, I bet your niece is crazy about it.
