    The Cat and Snail Continuum

    Finally! Finished and Delivered! This quilt was a cooperative effort between Izzy and me. She chose the design - cats in the middle, snails on the outside. I had to change the top and bottom borders to chevrons because I was running out of the selected materials.

    Izzy selected the fabrics; coordinated them for the cat blocks and choose the order of the colors for the snail borders. I merely did the piecing and quilting!

    All the materials were from my stash, except for the chevron background and the flannel backing. I did SITD for the cat blocks and then did echo quilting inside the cat blocks. I did pebbles around the snails and echo quilting in and outside the chevrons. I also did some wavy line quilting on the borders.

    While I was quilting, I found one block that was set incorrectly. I wasn't about to change it at that point. I didn't tell anyone, but Izzy found it very quickly. She said it made the snails look like dolphins. Can you find it in the first picture?

    This picture show a bit of the pebble quilting around the snails - I really like how that turned out.

                  That's really cute Sylvia and cheerful colors! Izzy looks happy with her new quilt. Great job, and by the way, I searched and searched for that incorrect block...........can't find it, so it doesn't matter. Looks perfect to me!

                              A wonderful gift you have passed on to Izzy, the time together and helping her to make something by herself! She will never forget this!
                              I am proud of all the grandmas who pass on this wonderful gift!
