Abby and Lucy
commissioned cat art quilts by Barbara Barrick McKie

Abby 14.65" w. x 14.25" h. and Lucy 14.5" w x 14" h
Abby and Lucy are cats owned by a cat lover who saw my work in a special exhibit in Somers, NY, and wanted me to do two commissioned quilts of her past two sweet cats. I edited the photographs she sent in Photoshop and printed them to cotton broadcloth, thread painted the images, and then, using 2-4 layers of wool batting created a trapunto treatment, and then free-motion quilted the background, and enhanced the outlines of the crab. While working on the quilts, their eyes kept looking at me, and I found it hard to give them up.
