Feline Friday and Quilt updates



Hello everybody!  It seems like the more I quilt the less blogging I do!  Actually what hold me up is having to edit every single picture, that gets irritating after a while.
I have new block to add to my quilt, it's a barn with quilt block in the barn door and a silo next to it!  I am going to make these for every other block, and since I need 12 blocks and have made 7 of the other, I have one extra block now!  I'll either make it a pillow or put it on the back, I'll have to decide which one.
I fixed the part around the windows on the upper left barn and added my sashing, I also added the borders and sashing on my first block which is the lower one with the French chickens.  I now have eight completed barn blocks!

I had to put this cat in the barn window, she is eating the cat nip seeds stored there!  Don't you love this chicken material?  A friend at the quilt retreat gave it to me and I have enough for one barn and hopefully to add to a quilt block in another barn.  Another friend gave me the cat material.
I finished none more blocks on my scrappy trip around the world quilt!  I needed to fix one which is why it is not  in the picture.

Can you believe how big Tiger is next to Oreo?
I have 34 completed but the rest are cut and ready for the final block making!  It should not take long to finish.  I'm trying to decide on my final layout.  I can do one of two things, I can either place it completely random, or have secondary patterns by taking blocks with key colors, like either the brown or gold, and grouping them together.  I'm thinking I like the idea of grouping them, what do yo think?  Can you see what I'm talking about in the picture?

I asked Muffin to pose, didn't he do a good job?

We have decide on a name for her!  Cupcake!
So we have Custard, Oreo and Cupcake!


Pippi was watching the kittens play while lounging in her cat bed!
What have you been up to this week?  I feel like I have three newborn babies in my house with these kittens!
Have a great weekend!
Missy

Love your progress on your quilts. The barns are so darling. Your cats were trying to steal the show, for sure. But isn't that what cats do?

Your barn blocks are awesome. Your trip around the world is a great scrap buster.

Hi Missy, Sorry to take so long to reply to your comment about how to make a blog button. Is there a way I can email you? My email is at the top of my blog if you'd like to email me from there, or just reply to this comment.

How do you get any quilting done with such cute friends!

Your sure making great progress. I love both quilts. What a wonderful labor of love. Do you ever wonder who will have your quilt 100 years from now. I often think that way. The kitty cat family are adorable. I really like the one of Pippi watching the kitties play. Too cute.
