Midweek Makers 306

Welcome to Midweek Makers! Here we are in the thick of fall and I'm sure everyone is feverishly sewing for the holidays - except me. With all I've got going on, I'm doing the bare minimum in the sewing department.

But that doesn't mean I'm not finishing things up. After a very early morning decision (3 am to be exact), the wide borders and mouse idea for the cat quilt was tossed aside. Now I'm going with a narrow, simple border and letting the cat applique blocks be the focus. With that decided, the cat quilt is on the frame and in the process of being quilted. Here's blocks 1 and 3 featuring echo quilting and stippling.

How I've chosen to quilt this has turned out to be very labor intensive. Exhaustion can happen quite easily, so I've kept the quilting to two 2 1/2 hours sessions per day, with mini breaks during the sessions. That's about all my mind and body can handle right now, but at least it's progress.

As for the shares seen last week, I'm seeing stars!

From Kathy's Quilting Blog, she finished up her Happy Little Accident quilt,

while Scrapbox Quilts finished putting together her Puppy Parade quilt top,

and Bastelhexe's Kreativecke made this beautiful star quilt.

Nice work quilters! And now it's your turn - come link up what you're working on!

  4. Wow to those cat quilt blocks, I had to look twice to see them. I also love your very colourful flower mug rugs in the last post. Always interesting stitching to see here, Susan. Thanks as always for hosting the linky party too.
