Fat Cat and Mousey

This challenge was so much fun for me. I really got into the idea of creating as a child. At the same time, I was creating for a child. Once I got the idea, I just dove in. Piecing was not dependent of fabric grain or exactitude. It was just all FUN!
The horror came when I turned the quilt over and saw a mess from quilting on the back. I glued all of the stitching down. Thus, what started out as a comfort quilt for a child became a wall quilt that will hopefully be wanted by a hospital for the children's wing.
I am really having a hard time writing this because I am very depressed after my guilds non reaction to this quilt. I was hoping for an 'atta girl' or two, but that was not forthcoming. Usually I am very 'high' after a guild meeting. Not tonight. Not sure I will show them anymore quilts that I am so emotionally attached to. It is all a journey; I learn as I go. This group has given me such inspiration and wonderful learning experiences, it is one of the BEST parts of my quilting journey.
