Lots of Cutting, Not Much Sewing

As the title says, I have done the border cutting for the PatchKats quilt, but I have only one block done.  It's cute, isn't it?  I chose blue fabric instead of green for the ribbon.  The nice weather we are having is a big distraction to me, but I plan to keep up with this.  Yesterday the second set of instructions were made available, and we are now making the cats.  

Hope you are enjoying a beautiful day.
God Bless.

Four-Patch Finish

It took a few weeks but I have this project completed and plan to donate it to one of the Hands to Help charities that Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict is supporting this year.  I am pathetically attached to traditional quilt blocks, and I don't think it gets any more traditional than the humble but lovable four-patch.  I'm probably going to let myself graduate to the nine-patch and see how many more scraps I can use up.

Today is a really beautiful Spring day here, finally.  The sun is out and it's warm and lovely.
I plan to begin work on the PatchKats quilt.  I have some American Made Brand red and cream that is going to be the heart border, and that's the first section we are working on.  

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and that it is as nice where you are as it is here.  
God Bless.
