Cat nip on the Milky Way

You knew it wouldn’t take me long to fill that empty project box, didn’t you?

The other day, I dove into the stash and came up with this fabulous Cat Nip fat quarter pack.


I bought it back in March when I bought the FQs for Dave’s Celtic quilt, because I just couldn’t resist those cute kitties and cheerful colours.

After picking out the fabric, I searched for the purrfect pattern… and settled on Milky Way .


As you know, I adore star blocks, and this one is such a fun twist. This time around, I did something unusual for me… I cut ALL my fabric before hand, (usually I cut as I go, depending on the block), so  I can sit down and whip up a block or two whenever the mood strikes. This works well with my need to have shorter sewing sessions.

I’ve already got the first two blocks done (they are the same – each pair of FQs gives you two matching blocks)


…and I am absolutely smitten with those starry kittens!

    I bought the whole kit for that quilt. I need to finish up what I have going so I can get to it. It looks like a real head scratcher though. It didn’t look so complicated when she worked on it.

    I don’t know which I love the most – your fabrics (probably) or the pattern. It is going to be an awesome quilt. I love that the star points are dropped so there is no worry about cutting off a point when assembling the quilt.
