A Baby Sister Quilt Start ... and Katniss finds a Box!

These are the scrap squares that I had left from

Yesterday I was trying to work on my next Stitchin's Sister RR border.
I was not sew productive.
My quilty muse is not happy with the fabrics I have gathered.
I am going to have to give this more thought ...
maybe find more fabrics in my stash ..
or something.
I do not know what yet.
My quilty muse is being very quiet on this project.

So today I am starting a new project while my quilty muse muses.

... so ...

Remember this quilt? 

I made this quilt for a little girl who loves pink.

Now she has a new baby sister!

So this pretty pink quilt needs a baby sister quilt 
to welcome this new baby to our world 
in the room she shares with her big sister.

So I pulled out my overflowing pink scrap drawer ...

Katniss helped.

Then ...

Katniss found a Katniss Sized Box!

This is the box in which I received the strings in this post, 

Katniss looks surprised that she fit and she and the box did not end up on the floor again as she did with the
 Butterfly Size Box in this post.

Katniss settled in.

Katniss says, "Thanks, Amy!" 

While Katniss enjoys her box,
I am stitching.

This will be a quick quilt.

I have a new charm quilt idea! 

My quilty muse and I are really excited about this plan.

More soon. 

... just keep sewing ...

The Katniss is linking up with the fun felines at



  1. That is going to be so pretty in the pinks.

    I love how cats enjoy boxes so much. What fun!

  2. Wow, you have a lot of great pinks! I dumped the scraps from Moe's box lid claimed bed - put in the kitty quilt and now he won't go near it. Guess I can get rid of that box lid now.

  3. Love your pinks. Perfect for a baby girl. Cats and boxes. Oh my. Cats are such funny animals.

  4. great pics and any cat in a box is time for great did good Pat...

  5. Great pink fabrics...I especially like the butterflies.

  6. Ha, ha!! Cute cat. I happen to know that she would have settled into that box whether she fit or not! Can't wait to see what new charm square idea you are working on!

  7. Ohh, I just love your pink scraps Ms Pat! Cant' wait to see the lovely little quilt you're making :)
