I made a few tiny changes to the original pattern. I decided to use raw-edge applique with black thread rather than the heavier satin stitch suggested in the pattern. I also added a button to the eye. I can’t wait to hang it up!
I’d never heard of Patrick Lose before, but I’ll definitely be checking out his work now. There is a new issue of Quilting Celebrations coming out on 9/27 – I can already tell this one will have some great projects, too. Check out the cover – I love that black cat!
