The Lions are out!
Whenever I get asked to quilt for Juliet of The Tartankiwi a little pulse of excitement runs through me as her designs ROCK in my humble opinion! You should have seen the smile on my face as I opened the post to this quilt.
What fun I was going to have! I set out (after the ditch stitching) to give each Lion slightly different facial expressions and each mane to have it's own personality.
For some reason I kept thinking of the Lion King movie when quilting these four magnificent creatures. I remember when that movie first came out on video and I bought it for my kids.........Oh the excitement! I still have the video, but no video player!
Juliet chose wool/polyester batting which has a bit more loft than cotton batting. Measuring 58" square. I love all the backing fabrics Juliet pieced together.
The computer motherboard pattern worked well on the funky border print and it quilts up pronto!

While we are on the topic of Cats you know I had a problem with our cat Simon's biscornu, it had a hole.........................which he loves as he can burrow his head in and knead and purr............
Time for a new one.............can you see it? It blends into our carpet!
