After finishing up the Daddio top, and almost finishing the Purrfect Petals top, I was itching to do some smaller piecing.
My sewing room/studio/office is very small, so when I’m finalizing a top the pieces are larger and I have to use my ironing board. The room is so small I have to set it up the hall outside the room. It means a lot of getting up and down – not to mention Dave tramping back and forth through my space whenever he needs to use the washroom, or get something from his studio.
When I’m just working on blocks, I have a smaller, portable ironing board that fits nicely on my table right beside the machine. Everything is in one space and it’s just more efficient.
So efficient that I was able to finish up the first five fancy blocks of Cat Fancy in just a few hours.
These are definitely the most complicated block I’ve attempted, and the most complicated of this quilt. So that means the hard part it out of the way and I can breathe a little bit easier. The rest is just modified nine-patches and sashing – and everything is already cut, so it should be smooth sailing from here on out!
