My daughter, Emily, loves Hello Kitty so I decided to make a little quilt for her using the pictures from a HK coloring book. Hello Kitty is really fun to embroider — I used both 1 and 2 strands of floss, depending upon the level of detail in the picture. My favorites are Hello Kitty in foreign countries — Emily likes the animal costumes. The alternate block is a variation of Puss in the Corner with an additional row on the outside. I’m sure it has a name, but I don’t have my book here to look it up. I plan to add a white border so I can quilt Kitty’s hair bow and maybe some Hello Kitty lettering.
