A finished quilt.......

I haven't had a chance to get my Hocuspocusville quilt sandwiched together yet, but I've been busy trying to finish up some scrap quilt tops.  I just finished this blue one.  I have a whole stack of various tops made from bits and pieces.  Thought I would give them to a women's shelter but my youngest daughter wanted this one and the one I'm working on now is going to one of my granddaughters.

I was able to visit a quilt shop in Lawrence Kansas called Sarah's Fabrics.  They have a nice selection of fabrics.  I bought 3 batiks to add to my stash and a new book.

Across the street from Sarah's there is a store called Stitch On and I didn't leave there without these two patterns.

The cat quilt pattern is foundation paper piecing.  I have never done this kind of quilting before but have always wanted to try. 

My to-do's grow so much faster than my finishes!
