44" x 60"
The design is by Carolyn Burgess Hughey called Scrappy Cats. Kerry found the pattern sometime ago in The Quilt Life June 2014 magazine issue. I made mine less two columns of cats and 16-patches. I knew from the beginning that making it the 68" x 68" intended size would not work with the yardage I had for the background. Frankly I like that it finished the size it did. It will make a nice lap quilt.
Up until the blacks came to play in Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Winter Mystery I have been using scraps from my stash. I am still using stash, but now into cutting from larger pieces. Sixteen 2" squares are a bit hard to get to. The most of any one of my 2" squares was ten. I have doubled up a bit on the reds to get the matching four in the 30 sets required. I doubt the duplication will be noticed when this beauty comes together. I sure am loving the fabric colors. Today will find me sewing!
Hope that your week is full of happy! Before it gets too busy check out how others are using their stash today at Patchwork Times.
