But first, my cat got sick.
I've been singing Soft Kitty to her. Well, till I got the $302 vet bill. Then, I started telling her she was obligated to get better. No choice. And, she did. Probably had more to do with the antibiotics. But, whatever. Makes me feel better to think I had a hand in it.
So, this is the quilt I pulled out of my hat. This is a Broken Star quilt that I made in half size, so it came out a quarter of the size of the queen sized pattern. It finishes at about 46" square.
This is the back I Pieced. The leftover yardage from the border fabric is a great, busy print that hides most of the errors. A lot more would have been hidden if I'd used blue thread instead of off white. But, I'm not picking it out for that. I already picked out the whole center because of the way the white thread showed up on the dark blue fabric on the front. I've switched to invisible for the star points and I'll do the rest with the off-white. That should show up nicely in the white squares.
I'm nearly done with the star points. Just a few sections to go. And, then I have to draw something for the white squares. Not quite sure what that's going to be. Not a feather wreath. I've got to be able to think of something more original than that. And, I am honestly feathered out. So, I'll think and think and think and draw some ideas.
And, I'll probably end up going with the feather wreath.
Watching three storms. Irma is expected to do the same kind of devastating damage that Harvey did. I feel for the people that are trying to evacuate and sitting in traffic and I'm sending my best to the people that have chosen to stay. Scary times.
Climate change being real, and all that, you know. Can/t say it often enough on my little platform when morons are squealing the lies against it from theirs.
