Are you like most quilters…love cats?  I love cats, although mine is giving me problems at this time.  I’ll tell you about that at another time, but first I want to tell you about this cute wall hanging.  Actually it is part of a quilt pattern.  Cindy is teaching a class called Crazy Cats.  It is an interesting quilt that is not paper pieced but uses a freezer paper pattern for cutting. Fabrics are stacked and all cut at once then shuffled to achieve diversity.  This class is Wednesday, April 24, from 1-4 p.m.  Call the shop to register. 
I wanted to show you the dolls that Yvonne and Rosa are making.  Aren’t they fantastic?  Yvonne’s is on the left, and Rosa’s doll is on the right.  They wanted me to tell you that they didn’t make the baskets that are on the table next to them.  Barb Hassenrik made them for the dolls.
This is a closer look.  Look carefully.  I thought the face and hair was painted on.  It is not.  This is done with very small stitches AFTER the heads are stuffed.

Here is a closer look.  Isn’t this amazing.

ON ANOTHER NOTEModa Bake Shop has instructions for making an interesting quilt.  Wouldn’t it be nice to make this and donate it to your local library or school?

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Wow! The heads are finished with stitching?! It does looked painted or drawn on, not stitched. They did a fantastic job. And those baskets are adorable!

The cat sampler looks really fun'
