Midnight Silhouette Quilt

Christine sent me a very special quilt to finish for her.  The quilt top was made by her good friend Anne who passed away last year. Anne was an amazing quilter and was very generous in sharing her quilting knowledge with others.  She had many quilting projects in the works and her wonderful quilting friends have been busy completing these treasures as they are part of her quilting legacy.  This quilt is called Midnight Silhouette, designed by Blackbird Designs. I asked Christine if she knew the story behind this quilt and she said it was a project of Anne's that she had not seen before so didn't know much about it.  She was surprised to see a cat quilt in her collection as she described Anne as 'not' a cat person.  I can related to that and find that I am drawn to this quilt too, the cat totally sets the mood of this quilt without being overly Halloween themed. Its a great design and Anne's piecing and applique skills made it a breeze to quilt.

 I quilted it with the Gossamer pantograph which looks like spider webs.  Used black So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

Christine sent this lovely orange/pumpkin coloured backing that really compliments the quilt top. 

The leaves are just starting to turn here and I'm sure by next week will be in full autumn colours. 


  1. That is an awesome quilt! How nice of them to finish Ann's quilts. My Mom has been working on some quilts that her friend made and we're delivering 2 of them to fhe husband Tuesday. I expect it to be an emotional day.

  2. Beautiful quilt! Such wonderful friends, Anne is certainly smiling from above!

  3. I love the quilt! It does have a Halloween feel to it.
