There is something so gratifying about giving a handmade gift to a good friend. This is the full piece. I wanted to create a sense that the cat was determined but effortlessly walking along the fence. The fence blends into the background like she's walking on water. I used one inch chunks of fabric to create a pixilated shadowy effect coming off the fence. I did the same in the high background but also used piecing to create a sense of the distance she has travelled. It feels really good to take that fat quarter you have loved and kept for so long afraid to cut and just chop it to pieces and play. It's invigorating.
