Scrappy Wednesday

This is the most delightful quilt store in Windham , NY - The Patchwork Co.
Run by the sweetest Mom & Pop and now joined by their daughter.  Emily and I were lucky to stop in between the two quilt shows and there wasn't any crowd - when we were leaving, yes!

I picked up this cute panel (I need another panel like a hole in the head).  'Catnip' by Jenelle Penner for Windham Fabrics.

And if you are a cat person, you totally get this one.

At the Windham Quilt Show I pick this lovely piece up off the guild remnant table.  It was marked as 4 yrds, but I think there is closer to six.  I made the 'apple' scrap quilt last fall and I think this will be a great backing for it.  Design by  Joan Kessler for Concord Fabrics.  I know some of the apple store scraps I used were also her design - nice marriage.

And I found this two yrd. piece of Laurel Burch "Christmas Cats".  I'm not fond of seasonal fabrics, but I love LB's kitties.

Are you starting to sense a theme going on here.  These blocks were made by my guild members - blocks for the out-going President to make a 'President Quilt'.  One of the light background blocks is under the machine to get a blanket top stitch - the maker might not have had this capability on their machine.  So today I will square all of these up and assemble the flimsy.  I think it needs a stop border and then wide border to bring it up to size.

I'd like to have this one completed for show & Tell at our next meeting when we return from Summer Break.  I'm the next term sitting President and I told them they didn't need to make another set of blocks - huge sigh of relief! 

Sewingly Yours,

All the cats look great, and as a cat lover, can see each one sewn up into something special.

Kitties! I love those Laurel Burch kitties too. They don’t look too Christmassy. Your backing fabric is perfect.

Beautiful cats in fabric and quilts! I have some Laurel Burch fabric that I haven't cut into yet. I'm sure there's a perfect project waiting for it somewhere in the future.

Very pretty kitty themed fabric and that fall scenic piece is really gorgeous. Now you've got some fun pieces to play with.
