Pets on Quilts Show: Sheila Painter

This beautiful quilt with a cat and parakeet, was submitted by Sheila Painter. 
Sheila, is not a blogger, so she submitted this entry via email, with the following insight:




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Please accept this photo of my miniature quilt with both a cat and a parakeet. I made this 12" by 10" wall hanging from a pattern by Aniko Fehrer. She called for the cat to be looking at a butterfly, but I fussycut a parakeet from fabric and appliqued that on instead.

This quilt was made and quilted by me. I did the thread painting on the kitty and the free motion quilting on the background as a relatively new machine quilter, having just recently purchased a sewing machine that could handle such stitching!

The bright green parakeet is the perfect foil to the black and white kitty. They both look so realistic.

I just love the drama in sheila's quilt. We know what that cat wants! It would be a great conversation piece for hanging anywhere. Her detailed work is outstanding!
