1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / the 100 pudge cats quilt on: August 16, 2015 12:54:20 PM

last december i did the "catvent quilt along" with oh frasson, and loved the result (seen here)
since then, i had plans to immortalize my own cat elroy in quilt form (i mean, as any crafty cat person should, right?)
i used the 100 block layout for this quilt, and started stashing white on white & black on black prints to use throughout.
here it is in it's entirety!

some of the faces had a small square that was perfect to use for elroy's pink nose, so i used leftovers from my camera quilt and gave the blocks little sparkly pink noses, and the backing is a solid pink to compliment it as well Smiley

when this middle block came together, it was suddenly such a perfect representation of his actual face.
the white on this middle one glows in the dark as well!

i'm stoked about how this quilt turned out,
but i can't say the same about elroy...

Beautiful and happy colors!  How cool that you were able to make it so personalized with her favorite things!

Looks like you are now quite hooked on piecing! Grin
thanks so much!
and i've totally gotten hooked on it.
definitely a little shake up from traditional quilt blocks, that's for sure!

Fine job!  It is so cute!  Bless you for all that paper piecing!  I am just learning and it sometimes is so confusing! Grin

I love the backing fabric as well...hope to see more of your projects!

thanks so much!
when i first started, i totally started with big piece blocks. 
i think this one has some of the smallest pieces yet in it!
i'm working on uploading more recent projects in the coming weeks Smiley
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / daffodils and kitty cats on: July 30, 2015 09:05:49 PM

i have a dear friend of mine from middle school who just had her first baby.
she's quite the cat lover, and also loves daffodils (which i learned thanks to her commenting it was her baby's birth flower)
i combined some of oh frasson's cat blocks with a paper pieced daffodil block i stumbled upon and created this little quilt!

i found this perfect piece of fabric on ebay for the backing Smiley

this quilt was the first time i used a walking foot (and used the plastic guide foot) so the quilting ended up a little wonky in places, but i have absolutely fallen in love with how much easier life is with such a foot!
thanks for stopping by Smiley
more photos of this quilt on the blog right here!

i love how all the patterns are the same on the quilts, but the fabric make them look so unique and different!

i participated in my first (and so far only) instagram swap this year, and of course it was kitty themed!
i found this pattern on craftsy and thought it would be a perfect mini quilt to make since i've been doing more and more paper piecing lately.

the block itself is about 12" and i used a stitch in the ditch for quilting it.
all the fabric with the exception of the crosshatch grays & backing came from things my grandma gave me.
here's a photo of the back, which i got on ebay for a steal, and perfectly matches the crosshatching of the gray fabrics!
