Cool Cats quilt and some fall small project finishes
What a fun quilt to make! The pattern has borders but I am not adding borders and will quilt and bind it. The fabric is Spirited Halloweenie by Bird Brain Designs. It is so whimsical and fun!
I just hung in front of another quilt in the living room for now with wonder clips!
I blogged about the Cool Cats several weeks ago. I had the blocks laying on the back of another quilt on the floor and it was so difficult for me bending over, etc.....and then last weekend we put the quilt pieces on that quilt backing on two folding tables side by side in our dining/living room. What a wonderful difference. It takes up a lot of room but is so much easier than on the floor. I had taken a photo of the layout I had planned and I kept referring to that photo over and over. You will notice in the photo that the bottom left cats are sewn backwards. I didn't notice it until I did the same thing with another group of cats. That is what seam rippers are for!! It is an easy pattern to make but you need to pay attention to placement!
Here is the pattern by Peggy Martin. Very well written instruction.
I finished this little mat/coaster/mug rug that I have hand quilted and blanket stitched around the outside edge. I used it as a project to work on with my Tuesday quilt group. I also finished the larger mat in the photo. I blogged about it in this blog post last week.
