Today's sewing goal was to finish piecing my
My quilty kitties have been very helpful with this one.
Here I have a row pinned but a very large cat is holding it in place for me
so I had to "lure" her off the top with a strip of scrap fabric,
which is one of her favorite toys.
I got her to jump over to the basket to catch the strip.
Then I quickly whisked the quilt off the table while she claimed her prize.
I knew she would drag her catch back to the table,
where she was having so much fun she drew attention to her play ...
... and she caught another "catfishing" sister kitty.
While the kitties were playing I finished piecing the quilt top.
The pattern is Poppy Lane by Down Grapevine Lane
I really like these
especially the Teal Parquet fabric that I used in the sashing.
That print reminds me of old fashioned cobblestones.
I also finished the pieced backing for which I made an extra house block.
I did not have enough of the Kona Seaglass to complete the back
so I found a coordinating fabric in my stash, which is a Riley Blake "Shabby" basic.
Tomorrow I will press my quilt top and backing and load them on my long-arm.
I hope you are having a happy, quilty weekend!
