Boo's portrait is the third in the series of "critter" quilts that I made in the summer of 2019. In case you haven't read about Widgeon's (I Love, Therefore I Am) and Yoda's (His Immensitude, Yoda, Emperor of Minions and All He Surveys) quilts, I made these to help Janome America celebrate and showcase what can be done on their brilliant machines. I appreciate their sponsorship since 2003--yes, I'm affiliated but I would say all the good things I say about Janome if I had paid full MSRP!
After making the quilts of Yoda and Widgeon, Paul--my husband--said "you should make one of Boo." Boo is his Very Special Cat. Paul never asks me to make a quilt. So, my self-portrait was gleefully ditched in favor of Boo. He is a Turkish Van (our first ever not-shelter cat) and is a hellion of a kitten. At 11 months now, he is also Very Large And Getting Larger. Ahem. He will be 14-18 pounds as a lean adult male. Yikes! And yes, he has one blue eye and one green (Paul says it is amber but it sure looks green to me!) Here's his blurb:
Boo is now older and bigger. And still a delinquent LOL!
Size 20 x 20" square.
Materials: artist dyed and commercial cottons, screen printing with original screens and textile paint, wool blend and cotton battings, Mistyfuse adhesive web, polyester thread.
