While Mom was snipping all those seams on the rag quilt, I was quilting away on the last of my blockhead blocks.
The result is a sweet little sampler quilt – about 47″ x 55″ so a nice lap size.
I only had enough of the yellow cats for a thin border, and nothing at all from my other prints, so I had to get creative. The stash yielded up just enough of the blue and black paw prints for a thin border of each. I was hoping to get some more paw print fabric for the binding, but Lens didn’t have anything, and I wasn’t about to wait for an online order when I was so close to the finish line. Mom had a nice black and white polkdot piece that did the trick.
I thought I might have to order a back for this one, I couldn’t think of anything in the stash that would work, but then I remember that the fabric line is called Day Dreamer… and I had the perfect piece of flannel.
Pretty blue clouds! From the clearance bin of course! (As an aside, I was in Lens on the weekend, and that clearance flannel bin was 100% EMPTY!!! This is the first time I’ve EVER seen that happen! I’m so glad I’ve snatched up pieces when I could).
Now this beauty is finished and available in the shop!
I’m not sure I’ll join another sampler quilt-a-long anytime soon, but this one was definitely a new experience!

IT is stunning., and how is it that your grass is so green?
I love those colors! There are so many good things going on in those quilts. You really have a talent for bringing all those elements together so well.
What a pop of cheery colors in this quilt-adorable! Love all of the fabrics complementing each other!
I love the use of different fabrics for the border – very pretty and clever. Nice job Val!!
What a cheerful quilt. I love those fabrics and colors together. I bet this one will be sold quickly.
That is very pretty.
That is such a beautiful quilt! I think the black/white polka dot border may look better than the pawprints. It just complements all the fabrics so well. You have a wonderful fabric stash!
It’s beautiful. I love how all of the fabrics work together.
Hope those kitties don’t go after the little birdies.
The polka dot fabric binding is PERFECT!
