Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics with shading to give details to the picture, quilted with clear thread.

Artist Statement: My daughter took a picture of her kitten that had sneaked into her purse and was peeping out of it. She gave me permission to use it as a model for a quilt. In fact she almost insisted that I make two, one for her and one for AAQI. Billy was a four-week-old foundling when he turned up near my daughter's workplace. She adopted him and found that he was, like many kittens, inventive and curious about almost everything. Realizing he might become an internet celeb when his face showed up in the AAQI lineup, he requested a small fee for the use of his image because he really NEEDED another toy since all the others had already been played with.
