Scotty dogs and Piano cat.

Two more projects are just about ready to remove from the UFO list!  Well, they were never really UFOs as I have been working on them both without stopping to do any other projects.  These are only small items, but there is so much else going on around here at the moment, it's about all I can manage.  They were just for fun and I have enjoyed making them :-)
This was based on a photo I saw on Pinterest, of a black cat sitting on a piano, and I thought it was perfect to make in patchwork.  The background fabric is the one I bought at the last quilt show I went to, and the appliqued cat was fussy cut from a panel that I have with cats in various poses.  
 The back is fabric that I bought after I bought the piano keys fabric.

A friend fell in love with my fabrics and asked if I would make her a mug rug for her son who is a musician.
Here it is.  The backing fabric is the same as above.

And here is my Scotty dog mini quilt (or whatever it turns out to be). 
I fused the dogs to the background, and machined around the edges.  The hexagon flowers are fused to the background but only the centre of them.  I will handstitch around the edges of those.  Then all that is needed is the backing and wadding, and binding, and it's done.

Hi Gina.. thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog.

These are adorable! You've come a long way in your quilting. So many cool, inventive ideas. So clever to do that fussy cut kitty on the keys. I'm sure any musician would love that mug rug. Love your Scotty dogs too. And those were not UFO's.. they were WIP's!

I love all your work, Gina! The colour and details are just delightful. As you can imagine, the music fabrics really spoke to me - must look out for some one day.
