I worked on a quilt today that I totally enjoyed making; it was fun putting it together. I had this collection; Coffee Cats Café, and wanted to make something that wasn't summery. After the past two weeks of heat, yesterday it hit 98 degrees, I am ready for cooler weather and an autumn project.
I love the beatnik cats. Visions of Dobie Gillis and Maynard G. Krebs.
This panel is part of the collection but I didn't use this today.
I decided to make this quilt, an Around the Twist design,
from this book, Big Print Patchwork by Sandy Turner.
True confessions, I borrowed this book from the library, it was due back yesterday, so I need to return it on Monday because someone else has it on hold. So, I wanted to make something and had this weekend to do it.
This is what I have so far.
The intertwined sashes have a cool look and are deceptively easy, even though for me it was a mind-bender putting the pieces together and totally fun.
