if you don’t care for cats or quilts then this post is probably not for you.
a couple weeks ago i showed you some material i cut for quilt #3. well, i rustled up some spare time this weekend and started sewing those blocks into rows.
so when i quilt, there is lovely material and loose thread scattered everywhere. and when this happen, my cats come running. it’s like a sixth sense or something. fellow cat owners and quilters, does this happy to you too?
i don’t have a dedicated sewing room here so my dining room and gift shoppe floor become make shift crafting and quilting space when no guests are here.
once i got all my rows sewed up i laid everything out on my floor to make sure i didn’t make any mistakes or get blocks out of order. to my surprise, i didn’t. yay!
i then i walked away (big mistake) for two minutes (as i’m usually trying to do a million things at once). and this happened..
thankfully, i had all my rows numbered so it wasn’t a terrible disaster. and i’m a huge sucker for cute and sleepy cats, so i really didn’t mind. as you can see i obviously ran and got my camera before shooing him away.
and he’s not the only one to blame. (he’s just not camera shy)
i’m fairly certain they were both involved in the disorganization of my laid out rows of fabric. in fact, you can see this guy hiding under the desk in one of the photos above.
but honestly, staying made at this face is near impossible. right?
either way, i was just happy to get all my rows complete. now, it’s time to stitch them together and then i can get to quilting.
and no, i still haven’t found a backing for quilt #1. thanks to all of those that offered suggestions! i’m thinking the best thing to do is take the quilt top to a fabric shop and choose the backing there. now i just need to find time to get to the fabric store! maybe this weekend?
what are you guys up to today? any fun projects? i’d love to hear about them!
