Design Wall Monday - 10/31/16

Happy Halloween!!

You knew I would be a cat, right?
And a purple/black cat at that?!

I've made some progress on the Owl quilt!!

I'm in the process of attaching one side filler unit to the last 2 rose stars on the bottom left (which is why it isn't laying flat - it's clipped at mid-seam). I also have another filler unit half made (top left) but I need to cut more 2" hexagon pieces. I'm very confident I have enough fabric to complete the 4 side filler pieces. I'm still not sure I have enough for the top/bottom fillers, let alone borders.  Only time will tell.

I have to say that Blue is not a very good Quality Control Officer. Zorro would have helped but he was outside (I need to pull him in before the trick-or-treaters descend on the neighborhood). Blue's no where near the quilt and didn't even come when I called him. You can certainly see The Boyz' toys and boxes all over the floor tho...LOL.

I'd really like to get that bottom left section attached to the mothership before Hexie Club on Friday but I'm not sure I'll have time as it's also the season to be making items for Christmas Bazaars.

I do have an all day EMT conference on Saturday so I'm expecting some hexie time there. I think the owl pieces will be too big for a conference set up but I'm sure I can pick out one of my many UFOs...

No costume here - we don't get any treaters our way. The furkids have been coming in for the night as the coyotes have been prowling too close, so no worries there.

You as a cat in purple--I would expect no less!
Mounting excitement as the owl quilt draws nearer and nearer to completion. Can't Blue feel the tension? Wouldn't he want to be part of it all? Oh, I forgot. He is the one that sits in your lap. He probably couldn't care less what the quilt looks like as long as he gets lap time in the process.

This quilt is fantastic! You must be so pleased.

I love your ears, my house is always scattered with cat toys also.
