Nyan Cat Quilt for my grandson

I finished up my grandson’s Nyan Cat quilt and I was going to wait until I gave it to him to show the photos but that may be a week or two so here it is! He’ll have to look at it online for now.

Nyan Cat Quilt for my grandson

The body is a strawberry pop-tart and is actually pinker than what shows in the picture. I just took this photo this morning…….notice the leaves? The trees are stressed from all the hot weather even though we got over 2 inches of rain last weekend. Maybe we’ll have a early fall.

The quilt size is approximately 56 x 90 – it was made to fit my grandson’s twin-size bed running lengthwise and when he comes in the door he’ll have this big cat looking at him. With the dark colors, I don’t know how it will do with the “real” dogs and cats. I asked Builder Bob if he wanted me to make one for our bed……………he thinks I am losing it!

I have to admit I had fun quilting this, I changed colors on the different areas, and by breaking it up that way the quilting seemed to go faster. The backing is a very old navy print with little tan dots. All the fabrics used in this came from my stash. When my grandson and I pieced it I ran out of a couple of fabrics and we just used others that matched pretty good.

Now guess what I am working on………..I have been commissioned to make another Nyan Cat quilt for the creator of……Nyan Cat! How fun! It is going to look a little different from this one. I am using all new fabrics and batiks in most of it.

I called my grandson and he is so excited, I have a feeling all he will be wearing anymore is T-shirts with Nyan Cat graphics.

Take a look at the  Batik Nyan Quilt.

I hung the quilt from our deck railing and decided to show you this photo……remember when I was in charge of power-washing the deck and sealing it…….early this summer….well I got the deck cleaned and then all the hot, hot weather started so I still don’t have it sealed. I should be working on it now but I have too many other projects going…good excuse.
See the little window next to the ground? That is for flooding, originally it had to have Styrofoam in it which could be easily removed if we had a flood. This is kind of crazy as we have 2 garage doors….but that is code. A couple of years ago we put a window in which looks a lot nicer.

Now I am going to get busy working in 23 minute increments – quilting, working on the tutorial for the Petunia Strings by the River that I said I would have up this week.
