Quilted wall hanging using the technique of thread painting.  This is my older cat, Angel.  I used Angelina fiber for the highlights in her eyes.  I embroidered her white whiskers at her nose, to make them stand out against her white fur.   I put a little mouse in the grass beneath her.   This is my first art quilt.

Thanks to all of you for your compliments and encouraging comments!  I'm new at this and I feel good that I was able to create this project!  Leslie, to answer your question, to make her fur look real, I turned the picture into applique pieces that I fused down.  Then I did the thread painting over it, which sealed the deal to make the fur look real.  I learned this process from Melinda Bula at a Quiltfest, and she has a website if anybody wants to check it out:   http://www.melindabula.com.   She does beautiful work with this technique!

Very nice quilt.  I am not a cat person but I love the quilt.  Keep up with your art quilts.  I would like to see more from you.

What a great job on your first art quilt!  When I saw the quilt, I immediately thought of my cat, Patches.
