When I was making this quilt for my BFF:
http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-120444-1.htm

I had come across the "stairway to heaven" pattern online and started getting ideas for a wall piece. Below is the result. I'm going to give it to MIL for mothers day. She's a cat lover. I'm not that great at applique so I did the best I could but I think it turned out pretty cool.

I LOVE it!!!!! Question: are the stars and trails the fabric that is glowing, or did you do all that quilting in the glow thread, too?

No, the stars are part of the fabric. I'm not good enough to sew such intricate details. It's just the stitching around the cats and moon that are thread.
