I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

I found this adorable purple-y kitty fabric in my stash....and this will be the
borders for Cassidy's quilt.  Not only is it purple but has kitties on it to remind
her of her kitty at home when she goes to college.  

Both sides will feature just the trees and the top and bottom will
have the kitties under those trees:

I have begun sewing the two long rows into twosies and will then do QAYGo
on the long centers and do the borders separately with a fancier quilting...

I  like the kitten fabric as it maintains my love of old fashioned fabrics
against the newer modern ones....

  8. Hi, Julierose. I really like your daughter's quilt--what wonderful fabrics you've selected! And the cathedral window blocks are so pretty--I did a project like that centuries ago as well. Almost makes me nostalgic!
