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! 




  1. Love the Scrapy Blue quilt..
    Great new fabrics and patterns.
    Have seen the Cats done in brights and it looked fabulous.

  2. Hi Rose, wow they are lovely new patterns, & the quilts you are working on are really lovely - so good that they have eager new owners!!
    Good luck with the new-to-you foundation piecing.
