A quilt for Charlie

Charles Eames Cat is my furry grandcat, owned by daughter Lisa. This will be Charlies first quilt.

You might remember my Orange Slices quilt.. a braid quilt done with Moda's Central Park. When I cut the braids to square off for the strips, I had lots of leftover pieces. Those became the squares that are sitting on the yellow floating "shelves" of this quilt. This is my go at MODERN quilting. It was also a way to use up a little from the scrap box.
Lisa was up north here for a couple of days and we spent quite a bit of time quilting. She finished up a picnic quilt and I finished up quilting this. Check off another UFO from the list :)

What a lucky pussy cat Charlie is! I hope he appreciates such a beautiful quilt to snuggle into - and cats do know how to snuggle, don't they, Deb!

I've been slowly pushing myself back to quilting. My back pain gets terrible in the mid day so early morning is the best time to sew.  ...
