Holiday Feline, 42 x 44", by Jo Garvin (Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania)
Holiday Feline won 1st place in the Quilters' Treasure 11th annual fabric challenge at the 2015 Pacific International Quilt Festival. Jo Garvin says, “I like hand applique and am always looking for unusual items to make my next wall hanging... "I came across this tiger in a clip art file on the internet about 10 years ago."
The 11th annual fabric challenge was to use Holiday Green fabric. The hand appliqued border reminds us of Hawaiian quilting. Jo says that she combined two different leaf stencils for green leaves; the decorated trees, shown below, came from motifs in her fabric stash.
