And here I thought I didn't have much to talk about...
Earlier this week I taught a class at my LQS.
It was on Milky Way by Fig Tree and Co.
It's no secret that I am a Joanna fan!
I had made this quilt earlier in the year and used my
"Bloggers Choice" bundle from Fat Quarter Shop.
I'm a big fan of theirs also.
(bundle is no longer available)
Everyone was so fun in the class and did so well on their blocks!
Even though the stars look a little bit on the advanced side...
They are really doable and actually fun to make.
Here is some of the stars in progress...
Made in Avalon fabric group from FT&Co.
Made in Shabby Chic.
Made using Kaffe fabrics
And this one using batik's and a navy background!
It was a fun evening... I think we all had fun!
Here is a group of the newest Fig Tree and Co. patterns just
waiting to be made. I keep seeing that Cherry Pi quilt popping up
on Pinterest. It is really really sweet.
I have no idea which one will come first...
but I am inspired by the stars this week and those basket blocks
are using the same method as in the Milky Way quilt.
It might be just the one... I will have to see what fabrics
I have in my arsenal that just might work for it!
Thank you for supporting my DIL and voting for her

Oh, and one more bit of news...
for the last few months
there has been this cat showing up
around our home. I couldn't decide if she was actually a feral cat
or some type of bobcat.
I have a couple of pictures I took of her
she is digging at something here... and here
I turned around and saw her watching us
when I was outside with Evie last weekend.
Kind of creepie!
But now, we have discovered that she has babies...
in our boat!
Now I don't think she is creepie... just a mom
trying to keep her kittens in a safe place.
I set out food for her last night.
Have a good weekend!
