Today I finished the entire main quilt. All that is left are the borders....and the cats. Right now the cats aren't quilted because I wanted them to stand out, but I am nervous about leaving such a large space unquilted.
|What to do about those kitties?|
I checked the batting and it says up to 10" apart, so I am okay there. But I dunno if it throws the texture off too much to have those spaces with no quilting at all. I went ahead and quilted the moon with a wavy texture that I like, but I just don't know what I would quilt onto those cats if I did quilt them. Thoughts?

-If you pick thread the exact same color as the fabric you are stitching onto, NO ONE can see it. I don't think you can see my stitching in the sky at all in these photos! I even tried to take a shot of the backing but it blends in too well there too! On the plus side, no one can see my mistakes, because honestly my quilting wasn't stellar :)

-I tend to make my FMQ narrower as I go along. So I started out doing the sky with big loopy spirals and by the end was doing much smaller spirals. This has been a problem I've had on a couple of pieces, and I'm not sure how to combat it except to always quilt really small from the start!
