This was a response to a cat in Harry Potter, her own cat, and it plays with the puss in the corner block. Like most of Janet’s pictorial quilts, this is largely pieced — rather than appliqued — and free motion quilted with a long arm machine.
She was the presenter for my quilt guild this evening. Janet said many of her quilts are challenges — or responses to a books read in a quilting reading group (they read 3 books a year and make 3 quilts). In this she used one block, a log cabin to depict a log truck. And note that at the large scale the 4 quadrants of the quilt form the courthouse steps version of a log cabin quilt.
