Cat Couch

I decided to get in a couple of hours of sewing today. I’ve been working on a batik pieced quilt for several months and wanted to finish the blocks.

My inspector is my big orange cat. He loves it when I spread out quilt blocks on the floor so he can examine the blocks up close. Since summer has finally arrived in the Pacific Northwest, my crafting room became warm pretty quickly.

As I spread out the blocks, my cat could barely crack open an eye to inspect my work. It took all his energy to remain on his cat couch for the remainder of the afternoon.

Tropical Delights Quilt

This spring, I had the opportunity to travel with my sister on our first ever quilting cruise! We went on the beautiful Allure of the Seas and had 3 days of classes while at sea. We made the gorgeous paper-pieced quilt called Tropical Delights. I finished about 1/3 of the quilt while on the cruise, and I finished it up at home over the past several months.

The bright colors in the quilt are very inspiring so I have the quilt hanging in my craft/sewing room.
