Cats Who Quilt
I don't know how folks who do not have cats are able to get any quilting done, really I don't! This morning I set aside a couple of hours to work on the handstitching of the binding down on Libertyville. I got about a half a side done when Natasha decided I needed her supervision. Couldn't possibly get it right without her intervention. A few weeks ago I captured this photo op of Rocky closely inspecting some fabrics I had pulled out of the stash--he is quite particular about which fabrics I use together!!! I am really anxious to get Libertyville into the Done Done pile as it is taking up room that could be used for more projects LOL. Yesterday I had mentioned my guild's Sewing Bee was starting a group of stash-busting projects. The first one is from the book Fat Quarter Five by Peterson. I still need to find the book (hmmm...a trip to a quilt shop this afternoon?). Our first one is called 4 Patch Flip and can be made scrappy or coordinated. While it calls for 17 FQs, most of the gals were cutting the strips across the width of their fabric yardages to make for faster strip piecing. I'll show a photo as soon as I can locate the book. It had some other quicky, scrappy, cute quilts. KC is hovering around 90 degrees right now. DH and I always like to eat a late lunch out on Fridays. He still works (has a small business) but tries to stop early on Friday. I am craving a Southwestern Wrap from a local restaurant called Houlihans. I really wish I could break the Blogger code of where photos are going to land!!! They preview one way and publish another way. Aaargh.
