My January UFO "Batik Cats" is finished - woohoo!
It is great to start off the year being able to meet a quilting goal. This quilt top was pieced maybe 12 years ago and the borders were sewn on this month. The pin basting was done last week and the machine quilting finished this week.
I tried a new (to me) quilting design called "Railroad Tracks" that I saw on Annie's blog, and she saw the idea on Leah's blog. Aren't quilting blogs such an amazing source of inspiration?!?!
I always practice sketching the design on paper first, then practiced on a quilt sandwich to make sure the thread was going to work with my fabrics, and then started on the quilt.
The quilt backing is an orange/rust colour which was hard to photograph...can you see the railroad tracks??
It was a fun design to try and quick to quilt. This quilt will be donated to my guild's community outreach program.
