WIP Wednesday

I also managed to get some paper piecing done for another project. 
 I needed to make a flower and a leaf.  
The pattern is from Ayumi's book Patchwork Please
 It is a great book. 
 I think you saw the hot pads I was making last Christmas and they were from this book! 
 I love her patterns!

This one is called Swedish Bloom Time and it is adorable!  
The flower is larger than I expected it to be for some reason.  
I have learned that I like paper piecing smaller things, like 1/4" geese, LOL, 
MUCH better then bigger things like this.  
All in all I am happy with how it turned out though. 
 So it needs to go into a larger project so...another WIP.
Linking to Lee's WIP Wednesday post.


It took some major brain power to figure out how to get the cats to come out like that though. 
 I have read that quilting is good for your brain as it causes you to do a lot of calculations 
and thinking, so good for us!!!

I had some adorable supervision while working too.  
How do cats make every place seem like the most comfortable place in the world to sleep?


You can see the tippy top of my sewing machine there on the bottom of the picture. 
 That was the view I had over the top of my machine while I was working.  
I love Autumn!


I have decided to work with a really dear friend of mine on another quilt. 
 First it was planned and then I decided
 I was not going to do it as I was running out of time for the "deadline".  
I have personally extended my deadline and enlisted help! 
 I can't say much about it other than to say I am making this pattern.  
No more about it for the moment though.  

If you want to purchase the same pattern and quilt along with me that would be fun, right? 
 Who's in??
