Finally......

I finished sewing the "Disappearing 4-Patch" Lap Quilt together.  I really like the effect of these blocks.  Later this week I will sandwich it together and machine quilt it.  We are going to the UP in July and I will deliver it to Janet.


I finally finished hand appliqueing March's block for Henrietta Whiskers.


Here's how the three finished blocks look together.  I printed up the patterns for the next 2 blocks and hope to work on them soon.

Here's my version of Saturday's Barbara Brackman Civil War Blocks.  I'm loving these blocks.

This is the 12 x 12 Something From Nothing Quilt I received from the swap.  Em from Em Celebrates made this.  I put it up in my sewing room for inspiration.  I wish you could see her quilting.  It is so fantastic.

Seeing it is finally Spring, I decided to hang my Birdhouse Quilt.  This was made from blocks received from an IQ swap.  I agonized over what to do with the blocks.  Finally came up with this design and I love it

Last Thursday Hubby and I got a Metro Parks Pass and have been going to Metro Beach walking.  We met some interesting critters.

This guy swam right up to us.  I think he was hoping for food.

This little fellow hopped right along with us squawking.  I'm sure he was saying feed me, feed me.

So I off to go walking and see if I can make more friends.  Wishing you a quilty day.

Hugs, Cat

Henrietta Whiskers is looking good! I need to get the next two blocks done, too. I need some hand work to do in June, so I might take it with me instead of working on it now....

I love the way that quilt turned out Cathy, that is just the neatest design. Love Henrietta, and that quilt from Em is gorgeous. I do love the way you put the birdhouses together, it looks very balanced, and I know that isn't easy to do when your blocks are different sizes!

Gosh I haven't been to Metro Beach since I was a kid. Enjoy!

I love the little quilt you got from your swap. Very pretty.
I have been seeing lots of red winged black birds here in California.
Thanks for coming by my blog to follow my trip.
