WIP Wednesday

WIP 1 with RB Which one of these is not like the other one?

It is Wednesday, so here is one of my WIPS (Works In Progress). When making a charm quilt, you need to sort & resort & resort your charms to try to make sure there are no duplicates. Do you see the 3 to the right of the 3-D kitty, they are similar but different & I LOVE IT! After sorting these, I was almost energized to sort & cut some more - ALMOST... (I also have not counted them yet. But I did find a duplicate...)

I admire your persistence in making sure you don't have duplicates. I've been working on cutting autumn charms from other quilts that I make. Eventually I got tired, and decided to cut more than one charm. I guess it will be called a "scrap" quilt now rather than a "charm" quilt.

A lot of work -- but it will be 'charming.'

Definition of charm quilt? (showing my quilt ignorance again)

It looks great to me, the cat seems to like it!

Cute, cute, cute ! I just LOVE your cat quilts...and your cats too!
(can't have one at home, as my daughter is allergic to them - but she loves them too - so she collects cat things, as a consolation)...

Smiles !

I have a question - how long did it take you to amass the collection of charm fabrics? I like the idea of putting together the 3 that are almost, but not quite the same instead of scattering them in the quilt.

Your real cat is so beautiful. And I am not a cat person as I am terribly allergic. But your cat makes me want to pet him, and take some benedryl.

And I like the charm quilt, too.

Your cat is so cute. I have tryed to not have duplicate fabric in my star quilt, but as you I have found two similar fabrics. You can ask everyone who visit you to find the duplicates in this quilt LOL
