A Special Gift

This is my sister Cheryl (of Silly Dog Art Glass) who had a special birthday in June.  I made this cat quilt for her with a technique new to me, but lots of fun.  This design is from the book Crazy Favorite Things by Janet Nesbitt of One Sister Designs.  I won the book at a guild meeting and within a week had this piece done, including hand quilting.  This piecing method seems to be somewhere between a pattern and liberated piecing.  If you have only used patterns before you might find it a nice way to dip your toe in the liberated water, so to speak.
