Six Cats in My Garden


I've been thinking about Linda Brannock and wishing her well and continued good health after a recent hospital stay.  Looking back through some of her books, I decided I wanted to make her Six Cats in My Garden.  A quilt I can relate to considering all the cats that I have had over the years.  I think eight cats were the most that Jim and I had at one time. 
 

 
The quilt is from Miss Jump's Memories.

 
The applique pieces are large, almost 26" across so the applique is easy and simple to accomplish.  I'm using the needle turn applique method and lots of older Brannock and Patek fabrics.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear that Linda has had health issues. I hope she enjoys a full & speedy recovery. I have always loved her work and cherish the time I spent with her at the Primitive Gatherings retreat.

  5. You have such a wonderful "stash" of treasures to choose from! A nice way to honor a friend you are thinking about.
