Have you been following along with Kathleen's Small Quilt Challenge over at A Sentimental Quilter? Kathleen has written several books featuring doll quilts and every month this year she has picked a pattern for us to make. She even set a schedule of spending one week each on picking fabric, piecing blocks, adding borders and finishing the quilt. Easy Peasy in theory, unless you have a crazy schedule like someone I know and that meant I spent more time dreaming than stitching. Until this month!!!
This month's project is a freebie posted on her website so of course I printed it out to add to the wish list. Last night I was trying to pick up the studio and was going to move the pattern to the pattern pile when I walked past several coordinated half yards that I had gotten in Houston last year. I just knew I could use those fabrics to make this darling quilt. Last night I cut out all the pieces except for the outer border and this morning I sewed the center block together. That pretty much puts me on schedule since I can put borders on next week.
These fabrics (Catkin) are adorable and I'm thrilled I finally found the right project! I hope you can pick out the stretching cats in the center yellow blocks.
