Cats are mysterious creatures, and one of the most lovable. This feline was modeled after all those wonderful black cats in the world.

A Quilted Bag

Machine quilting is one of my favorite activities because I love the way quilted lines texture the fabric. This quilted bag came in to being for a friend’s birthday gift. It is sturdy and brightly colored. The fabric is a combination of recent acquisitions and old fabrics waiting to be used.
