Break Through

Very pleased that this quilt will be wrapped up shortly. Based off of Denyse Schmidt's What a Bunch of Squares. I used scrap fabrics and what I had to make it. I haven't sewn the blocks together yet so the layout might change slightly.

Of course I had a little animal help with the layout.

"oh, I am sorry. You wanted to take my photo?"

"why, let me come over so that you can see my furry fineness a bit closer."

"I am capable of moving fast, but not today, not during the day at least."

"While I am making my way over here, you should know that you really must clean up this clutter if you are taking photos of me."

"Oh yes, I think this quilt will suit my needs just fine."

Looks great! And all I'd like to know is... what is it with cats and quilts!? It's like how they always want to sit on the lap of the person who hates cats. =)

Really, really gorgeous. I can't wait to see it done! What are you going to back it with? What are you going to bind it with? Huh? Huh?

I miss having cats.

Looking good :) It looks totally differnt than what I imagined all layed out together. Have you tired palying around with the combination of blocks? I think it looks really nice the way it is.

My sister and I were talking the other day about how, if we were to set a post-it note on the floor, one of our cats would have to come and sit on it. (They do seen to be especially fond of quilts though.)

LOVE your top. The colors are fantastic.

I love this idea! I might have to make one like that this fall...

in my house it's the dog. Always in every picture.

The cat just likes to lie on the newspaper when i try to read that...
