Cat on a Quilt


Autumn Joy Quilt block, Cat on a Quilt is finished.   This block represents my house.  I always have a cat on a quilt.  I have adopted a new rescue kitty.  I have named her Yum-Yum.  She is a flame point siamese., so the name is in reference to  “The Cat Who …. books”.  She is settling in nicely.  For a siamese she is pretty quiet.  She has only voiced her opinion when the food bowl becomes empty.IMG_1034 When I showed a friend the finished block she exclaimed it looks just like Yum Yum.  So there you have it.  My first picture quilt.

I really let this block intimidate me.  The finished block looks so less intimidating.  But when you see the drawn pattern and all those lines going in all directions, I just went O.M.G.  But I eventually tackled it and made it my own.  I am pleased with how it turned out.  I have hand washed it and it is currently drying before it takes it place on the design wall.

Now, just two more blocks and this awesome quilt will be ready for the quilter.

I also have my Saturday Sampler quilt to set together now that the year is ending. We met last Saturday for our final block.    That is on my to do list to finish this year.  It WILL NOT become a UFO.   And of course, I signed up for the 2016 Saturday Sampler Group.  Samplers are so much fun.

I got two of my quilts back from Vickie Clancy, my personal quilter,….. tee hee.  She does such wonderful work.  I have to get the binding on them and they are finished.  This girl is moving right along.  The year is coming to a close and I have accomplished many goals, and emptied many tubs as well as put to rest some aging UFO’s.   I am very pleased with my accomplishments so far this year.  But as Yogi said, It ain’t over til it’s over. !!!!
