Design Wall Monday

I had two finishes in two days this week, and so I'm feeling pretty spunky.  First, I finished the free motion quilting on my "Flip Flops" quilt, and it now hangs happily in my sewing room.


I finished my Kitten's Tale BOM.  I've been working on this one for a long time, and so I'm glad to say that it's history.  It's going to my long arm quilter, Tammi, for quilting, and then it will need binding.  That all seems trivial given the amount of work that's gone into it already.  If you'd like to see images of the individual blocks close-up, you can see them here.


So now I'm on to other projects that I'd like to finish up before I die.  I completed one more block for my "Let Sleeping Cats Lie" quilt.  This one is in two shades of teal.

Here are the other blocks I have completed for this one.


I have three blocks to go to finish.  I have the cutest multi-colored cat print for the border.  I'm getting excited to see it all sewn together.  I'll still need to do four applique mice that go where the blocks intersect.  Right now I'm trying to decide between embroidery or beads for the eyes on the mice.

I've made a couple of quilts now with the snail's tail block and your cats project interests me a bunch. Hopefully I can find the pattern and make one of my own. Sandi

I totally LOVE the cat quilt. It is soooo cute. I think beads for the eyes would set them off perfectly

You have got your finish feet on, haven’t you Barb ?~! That’s so cool. Will the cats be square when you finish it ? I love the teals a lot; those colors sing to me.

The flipflops turned out so cute. :D Are those buttons at the toe point?

Congrats on all the progress. Both cat quilts are cute, but the bright colors of the Let Sleeping Cats Lie make it my favorite of the two.
