Meow or Never Kit

We recently received the fabric line Meow or Never from Moda in my shop. I ordered some kits with the fabric.

Moda kits are always so nicely packaged!

Over the weekend I was able to complete the quilt top.

It was too windy to hang it on the fence to photograph it, not that it would fit well on my fence anyway. The quilt finishes at 60" by 72". The kitty is a digital print. This means that the kitty is printed as you see her on a big piece of fabric. All you have to do is cut her out and fuse her on. Since she is so big, bigger than any ironing surface I have, it is a challenge to get her properly placed and fused. I ended up laying out the top on my basting tables and ironing directly on the table. Didn't hurt the table at all!

I didn't bring home any backing fabric from the shop so I didn't get her quilted. Just as well because this way I had time to do a little personal sewing. I'll show you that later this week.

OMG I didn't realize it was that size. I love it. What an adorable kitty.

Does "digital" print mean it's not as soft? Would you say this is an "easy" project? I've never made a quilt like this or even bought a kit... thanks for your help.
