CATS FOR QUILTERS

I fell in love with this RJR line of fabric when I was at the Attic Window Quilt Shop Saturday. "Caterwauling" is a must-have. (I'm sorry that the picture does not do it justice as the colors are really vibrant.) The above panel has so many possibilities. You can use it as is or separate the cats and assemble a quilt using all the complementary fabrics that are in the shop. On the other hand, you can put a cat on a pillow or the front of a purse or a book cover. You can do so many things with this panel.

Above are just a couple of the complimentary fabrics to go with the Caterwauling panel. Stop by the shop and take a look-see (Do not forget your purse. You will not be able to resist!).

Catherine Mueller was at Bee Saturday and shared a couple finishes. Above is the redwork that she recently completed. Her redwork is so nicely done that she didn’t need to use a backing to keep her threads from showing through!

Above is another finish by Catherine. She used batiks to make last year’s sampler. What a great job she did! Isn’t fun to see how quilters can take the same pattern and using their own unique style can create something entirely different? Great job Catherine.

The Polka Dot Pineapple has a tutorial for making wire edged fabric flowers. Great idea for those of us who can’t wait for spring!

Until next time,
Caroll

Beautiful Redwork!! Love the use of batiks in the quilt. Also like the way the blocks are set. You have a wonderful group of skilled sewers in your area.

Have a great day.
