Woohoo! Progress has been made on my appliqued cat quilt blocks - take a look!
With all the freezer paper templates gone, the blocks are pressed and trimmed to 14.5" square, corner triangles are added, and the center sashing joins them together. That's pretty good progress for me right now.
Reason I say that is because hubby and I have been making 12 hour drives (one way) every two weeks to help a relative rehab a house. It's slow going and there's still plenty do, which is not only exhausting but it really cuts into my quilting time and creativity. But I know all of the house work will be worth it when it's finished.
So, with that in mind, you may see fewer quilts and fewer posts from me over the next 2-3 months. Midweek Makers will continue on, and I've got several book giveaways planned over the next few weeks as C&T Publishing has been far too kind.
As for my cat quilt, I haven't decided on the borders yet but it may involve mice. And with this being a hand appliqued quilt, those mice will have to follow suit, which takes more time. Hmmm, maybe I can work on that on those long drives, just as long as I don't get carsick.
Overall, I'm happy that what started as blocks tucked away in a drawer for years is now becoming a quilt!
