Most of my quilted wallhangings start out with a sketch or drawing. One day I was playing around and decided to sketch some cats doing something unusual, swimming, sun bathing and the insane possibility of scuba diving! The "water" in the pool is hand dyed silk and quilted to make it look like a swimming pool. All the cats were hand painted using a textile paint and were appliqued onto the quilted wallhanging. The vines/leaves were cut from a commercial cotton fabric.
