Kitty Quilt Update

School.... takes up so much of your time. Wow. Will enjoy not having homework. Soon, very soon. In the mean time my life revolves around courses and homework. Right before classes started for the spring I was working on a project for my SIL.

When I last posted this was my layout and everything was ready to be sewn together.

I started by attaching the kitties to the corners. *cough* I mean the corners on the cat blocks.

Then I chain pieced the 9 patches and tried to keep the rows together.
(Obvs. my ironing board is my place to take pictures right now)

I ironed my seams open to avoid bulky seams, since this one is going to be hand quilted.

Trimmed all the corners on the cat blocks and pressed them out and open.
Now I have 4 lovely cat blocks all ready for the 9 patches.
Oops. Apparently I forgot to take a picture of the completed 9 patches before the quilt top was completed.
So this top is another WIP while I work on homework. Fortunately(?), this semester I have several hours between courses and nothing to do except club meetings and homework. I plan on packing small projects like this one and working on them when I find time. 


  1. Lovely work, I can design and create a bear but I can't do patch work...have added you to my blogger :) Amanda xx

  2. Emily you're a creations are beautiful, I love your snowman he's stunning! I've just won a Singer 201K complete with the table and love it. It doesn't have the stitches on that my modern machines have but it's lovely to use and is quieter than any of them :)

    I have become a follower of your blog and look forward to popping back to see what you're up to.
