My Carnival Quilt.... of these should have been but I chose another design.

I like these harlequin squares but they don't really show the Danish carnival: fastelavn which was my intention.

However the cat is from the Danish fastelavn. Many years ago a living cat (sometimes 2 cats with their tails tied together) was put in a barrel to 'beat the cat of the barrel' with the cat as symbol of the evil. 
It didn't really take me where I wanted so I dropped this idea too.
By the way: I have used some of the ice dyed fabric I showed in a previous post.
