Next due for some sewing love was Cat Fancy. I got the hardest blocks done about a month ago, so it was definitely time for the next step.
Like the first block, this block started with geese
I quite enjoy making geese, and a definitely see a geese quilt in my future. (In fact I’ve been cutting scraps in appropriate goosey size… perhaps another L&E project).
While this block wasn’t quite as complicated as the first, it still had a fair amount of pieces. And I kept sewing those darn geese on in the wrong direction. But after much ripping and resewing… I had four of these big beauties done.
They need to need to be sewn together with the first blocks…
And then there’s a thin, pieced border all around, and another big border (which is mitred!) and this top will be wrapped up.
I have to say, if Mom hadn’t bought the kit for me, I probably wouldn’t have attempted this. It’s much more involved than any other quilt I’ve made. And while I’m glad to have done it… I’m quite happy to stick to simpler quilts in the future. But it’s nice to know I can, if I want…
