Last three barns and Feline Friday

I finished my last three barns!
First I cut all of my "wood" for each barn and sorted it to make sure I had all of the pieces I needed for each barn.

In these barns I have owls, cows and of course we needed more barn cats harvesting the cat nip!
Next, I built my frame to make sure everything was in the correct place before I nailed it together.
Then I nailed them all together, ripped the seams out of the ones messed up and resewed them!
The barns with the silos are a lot easier to make than the full barns!

This scrappy star pattern is from Bonnie Hunter, here is a link to the free pattern!

My first log cabin block!
Of course I have to include a couple of cute cat pictures.
Quilts are cat magnets!

Cindy from Retro Revival, did you get my email?  You won my giveaway!

Now all I have to do is sew all of my blocks together and I will have a finish!  Yeah!  My husband said now that I know how to build a barn, that I can build us a real one when we move!  LOL

Not only are your cats and quilts drawn to each other but your cats certainly are contortionists! I always enjoy seeing them piled on each other or stretched into crazy shapes :)
