This quilt started as an idea a few years back when I saw a baby tiger and got a few pictures of her. "Baby Tigress Sheena" is of the same tigress. The tail didn't show in that quilt and I decided to feature the tail in this one.
We also took pictures at the Arcata Marsh to get the cat tails used for the rest of the idea.
I shaped the quilt in a different way to draw more attention to the tiger.
Techniques: Mosaic Picture Piecing ground, woven, sky, applique and paint for cat tails. Lots of thread on a painted tiger. Heavily quilted.
