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!
