Cat Tails

33"x37"

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.
