I have the first Claire's Cats book and did a quilt a while back for my friend Judy that had been diagnosed with bone cancer. The new book is cute too. One of my other obsessions is Halloween so I absolutely could NOT resist this cat leading the JOL choir. It was an adorable quilt all made up.
I had bought some charm squares and wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with them and then I found this book. I have not seen many of the books or patterns using charm squares that I like but I loved the patterns in this one!
In fact I liked them so much I bought this fabric and these charm squares to make one of the quilts for myself!! Wow, I may actually get a quilt on my own bed. Wouldn't that be novel?
Then I found this fabric. Fresh Squeezed. I just fell in love with it. I found the striped fabric at Eleanor Burns' tent for $4/yard, so viola...I had my backing too!! Now I just need to find the aqua from the bundle to use for a border. Any suggestions?? This one will also be for me but I have NO idea what pattern I want to use.
Then I found this and thought I would share it with all of you too. The woman at Ohio Quilter's Journey is having a give away. Go check out her blog and answer her question for a chance to win!
Have a great day! It is sunny and beautiful here!!
