More red fabrics! I will start to officially count & cull after Houston. I hope to get some Katie Jump Rope reds there. (could not get free spirit fabric's website to come up so the URL is from quiltersbuzz.) The black with red hearts may be too black... But I do want 4 dark red on black prints for the center of the quilt.
Just need the borders - I am thinking of using an bright on black print... I decided not to applique anything onto the spacer blocks. I am pleased with the checkerboard effect. 36 different black & white prints - 2 of which show cats. Unfortunately I gave up my musical b&W's in a trade becasue the dad to be for this quilt is a musician. Oh well, the quilt is no worse for wear without it. The machine button holing was TEDIOUS! I have a new found respect for those who can do it well. Liberally adapted and corrected from a pattern by Oy Vey Quilts.
Once Upon a Time, pattern in Modern Quilt Workshop by Ringle & Kerr. This is my second one... (of 3? I want to do one for myself)
And now for a stupid cat trick. My little boy, RB, can do the biped. Not a quick up & down like most cats. He can hang out for a good bit tryign to catch the toy. Unfortunately it is apparently impossible to be holding the toy & trying to get the photograph... & He is smart, he will hop up onto the table or TV to be at the same height as the toy, so that he does not have to try to grab it. :o)
Another shot of him in the moment!
FYI Rhapsody wanted to play too - she is an up & down grabber. He attacked her while she was up - on her soft under belly - SO not happy...
I may be scarce for about a week while I am in Houston - take care & stay safe. I can't wait to meet all who are going to be in Houston!
