This small quilt was four cute kitten panels. My first task was to stabilise it, which I did by stitching around the borders (orange thread) and then around all the main elements in each panel (pastel variegated thread).
I decided not to quilt anything fancy in the borders as the cats needed to be the focal point, so I just did a straight line outline in a soft green thread.
