Cat Block

cat quilt block with embroidered face The cat block consists of a square, rectangles and triangles. I made the tail tip from contrast fabric (bone fabric), and I turned them in opposite direction on two cats. That way, the tail twitches one way for two cats and the other way for the other two cats.

I used a narrow satin stitch to machine embroider whiskers.
