Barb pieced this is with beautiful fabrics. Such soft subtle colors. It's 46 x 46.
I used a grey thread that blended with all of the fabrics.
I quilted elongated swirls in the diamonds to accent the direction they flow
I like the way the swirls all come together in the center of the quilt
The 9-patches have have double connecting curves to soften those straight lines
I outlined the edges of the narrow border
The black border has feathers that curve around the corners from center to center.
The backing is this same black fabric
I used a gold metallic thread to outline the gold cord in the large print border

I quilted a meander in the face and body
The facial fur and tip of the tail have a swirly filler, with black whiskers done with a ruler to keep them straight.
The sky background has cross-hatching
The green border has loops,and the orange border has wiggly lines
I put a star in the green corner squares
I found the perfect fabric for the back
