Christmas Cats is complete and here it is.
Okay, so ugly blocks. On occasion, while putting quilt blocks together, I think to myself, 'These look so bad' and yet, I know to keep going because collectively, once they are put into a quilt, they all seem to turn out okay.
The quilt now on DW just got worse as construction progressed. I'm not sure why I kept pushing forward with it, but I did. It'll be a nice piece to work on my skills with because the only place this quilt is headed is to the car or the donation pile.
After working the whole cloth piece, and another quilt as you go done previously, I feel like I can move to the next level of quilting; deciding what quilting needs to be laid down, and how to enhance the block in question with thread. I did my first of 12 blocks last night. It took longer then I thought it would, but it turned out nice and I'll post a pic tomorrow of that.
This morning, after watering the plants and taking my shower, Papa went outside to do something and said, "Hey, there's a package or two out here for you."

MSU plays at noon today so I get some alone time in the studio. We were supposed to head into Lansing to help the kids insulate their house, but they called late with tickets to today's game and are moving the insulating project to later. Had I not dropped a LOT of coin on some long-arm classes in October yesterday, I would be headed to a quilt show in Birch Run, but I think I need to stay here and just enjoy yet another beautiful autumn day in the studio.
