    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.

    That is so cool. Don't tell your MIL you used glow in the dark thread and fabric and have some fun when you get a phone call that the quilt glows in the dark! I can just picture the reaction the first time she sees it in the dark and doesn't know about your special embellishment.

    OK, question here....you used glow in the dark thread to outline the cats and moon. Am I understanding you correctly that the fabric with the stars CAME with the glow in the dark effect ????? that is so COOL... do you recall where you purchased it ????
