Intermediate Crazy Quilting Class - Another Raised Applique

I thought I'd do another raised applique to add to one of my CQ blocks. I decided to do the little cat that was part of the class material.

It was not easy turning the little head and trying to get it through that little neck. There was a bit of swearing done:)  I used felt again which wasn't really a good choice. Next time I think I'll use a very thin knit...a t-shirt weight maybe.

The Intermediate CQ class is made up of several individual task units. At the end I hope that my three practice blocks will end up looking somewhat complete and with a certain amount of flow. Here is my "silkie" block so far. I still have a lot of touches to add.

I thought I'd join up with The Needle & Thread Network today.

The N&TN is a forum for Canadian textile artists and today is their 3rd year for weekly linkups. Please come over and visit and see what my fellow Canadians are up to.

Take care:)


  1. I absolutely love the expression that cat has! It definitely looks as though it's quite disapproving of all that

  2. The cat is great! I can only imagine trying to turn that thing. Ugh.

  3. I'm going to try my hand at those little applique. I saw Kathy has a tut on her blog. I love your block. I have visited the network before and there is a LOT of talent there! You'll fit right in.

  4. You did a great job on the cat. The expression on its face is perfect.

  5. Beautiful work. The cat is gorgeous

  6. Simply love that cat! The blocks are beautiful.

  7. That cat couldn't be any cuter. The work on these blocks is beyond impressive. I can only imagine how they'd look in person.

  8. It\s been all summer since I've had a chance to visit with you. i sure missed a lot. I still have the last vine to do on my CQ. I've been away almost the entire summer helping my mom, she broke her leg and really needed the help. Now she is mending well and I'm back home hoping to stitch to my hearts content.

    ps. Daughter is loving McMaster and never wants to leave, well, except for the odd weekend, maybe.

  9. Thats got to be a siamese cat lol Love the way youve pieced it all together and it all melds beautifully.

  10. The expression on your little cat keeps cracking me up! My mind is still trying to take in that you turned his head through that titchy neck!! Are you a Magician? Hugs Mrs A.


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:) I have also had to turn on comment moderation to hopefully stop spamming.
