Design Wall Monday, September 19, 2011
My Monday morning starts out with eight Crazy Cats on my design wall. This leaves me with four more to finish before the second half of the workshop on September 29th. These cats still need their whiskers. The pattern calls for baby rick rack. The lighter cats will be getting black and the darker cats get white. When I picked up the black I'd not considered that the black wouldn't show up against the darker cats. The next four cats are red, black, purple and orange. I'm sure looking forward to making the stripe cat. You will need to come back on Wednesday to see how it turns out! (Look at yesterday's post for more information on this design.)
Canyon Quilt Guild September monthly meets tonight. Nancy Brown is our speaker for the evening. She is known for her animal applique designs. I took a workshop at Road to California a couple of years back. Nancy is a delightful teacher. I appliqued from a photo of my girl cat Kaos. I used the block in my 50th Birthday quilt that was named Kwilt Klub Kattery. Kaos is in the top left corner. Don Linn also known as Mr. Quilt will be Canyon's speaker in October.
The Sunday progress on Kolonial wasn't much. I did finish trimming the strip blocks and cutting off the dog ears on the last HSTs. I also found a neutral fabric with a pink cat print small enough to make one side of a HST. I also found three pink cat fabrics that I'll sew into the borders. Once I have my four Crazy Cats sewn I will be back to Kolonial.
I still have a goal set to make a crumb block with Jo's Country Junction Crumb-Along. This Tuesday bring another block...already behind! I've got a link to her project on my sidebar if you want to get in on the fun too.
Hope your design wall is filled with something fun. Check out other design walls at Patchwork Times.
