I made this quilt top out pieces of a panel I was given.  Added some plaids and ginghams and then decided that some silhouettes would be the finishing touch for the "plain" blocks.  I admit to using the buttonhole stitch on my Janome rather than do it by hand.  Did it in black so as not to detract from the silhouettes.

Oh, have to add one more thing. Huge pat on the back for getting your stripes and squares so straight! Awesome.

Marge,

I think you make really cute kitty quilts. I think you should make puppy quilts next.  Whatta you say? The dogs on  Farm Animals would love it if you would make them all a quilt, they need them, we really do. Thank you so much, in advance. Many hugs to you from all of us.   Ms. Cricket

PS I have a quilt, so I am just asking for my friends that don't have one. I don't want to be greedy. : )

I really like your idea of doing the kitties as silhouettes!  I'm not very good at applique and get overwhelmed with all the pieces.  This is something I might actually try to improve my skills.  Of course any quilt with cats or dogs is a winner in my book!

Adorable. You've inspired me. I just order a cat panel with no idea about what to do with it. I love the silhouettes, especially since we have a black cat called shadow. I have never like applique (doing). I have a Janome too, so I might practice that buttonhole stitch and see if I can learn something new. Again, love your work.  Did you use that double sided iron on stuff to hold them in place before you appliqued them?

Dardar - sorry - I just saw your question. Yes, I used Heat and Bond Lite to put the pieces onto the background fabric before going around the cats with the buttonhole stitch.  

Do you have a Janome 6600?  That is what I have.  I used Mode 2 - pattern #35.
