She quartered the square block to make it fit in the triangles, clever, huh?
I just love how it turned out! I was going to sell it in the Christmas Craft show but it never made it out of the lab as someone there bought it and I have an order for another one! Not a bad deal, right?
I have been a busy gal working on the "middles" for the Big Ten quilt too. I had to get OSU and Illinois finished to give to LTW to do the embroidery on. I also gave her a blank white piece of fabric to embroider the NW wildcat on. She, of course, gave them all back to me today so now I need to fuse the "N" around the cat. I got all the other middles fused too and all the "kits" for the blocks are ready. Or so I thought. I need to cut sashing for all the blocks too but I am not sure I have enough of the plain fabrics left to do that. We will have to see how it goes.
I love seeing into the sewing rooms of everyone else so I thought I would share mine. You can see Mosen over on the arm of the couch. This is actually our living room but most of the time it is my sewing room.
Unfortunately, this mess is the first thing you see when you come into my home. Where I am standing to take the photo is just as if I had come through the front door. Do you see the picture on the wall over the chair? It is a cat on a quilt. I got this long before I began quilting too! It is a beautiful print and my DH had the artist (NA Noel) write "You are my sunshine" on it and sign it. (He had that same saying engraved on my wedding band).
The cats were full of it yesterday so you get to see the "fun". Here is Autumn, claiming Laxy's toy. The poor dog went to get it and the cat hissed at her! It was the funniest thing.
Aiden has been missing some "me-ow" time with mama lately so anytime I have stuff on the table she is lording over it. (See Captain Jack in the background?)
Here you can see how the middles are turning out. I have to stitch around all of them now. That takes me a little time. Especially Penn State, Iowa and the Big Ten. These are the kits.
Close up of Mosen on the couch. Isn't he cute?
Here is Captain Jack closer up. The only cat not in the room with me was Hallie.
He is the BEST sleeping cat ever! He just lays next to me and purrs and purrs until I am asleep.
I have a lax parent meeting tonight and then quilting on Tues with the CL's and on Wed with the CHV ladies. I hope you are all having a good week!
