Hi everyone - it finally feels a bit like fall here in Northern California - socks, and a sweatshirt - snuggled down......

I'm tickled to have just finished this flimsy... it's got quite a story... 

The star points began life more than two years ago, as part of a Bonnie Hunter mystery - but after making the blocks, I didn't like the colors, and put these points aside, and used another set of colors...  so they sat, in their little plastic bag..........  finally I fussy-cut some centers, in this cse with these little adorable cats on them, and made blocks.  Then it was a matter of finding an alternating block, and we were off !

As you can see, the minute I put it down for the photograph, Mystic came to see..........  About ten seconds later he decided there must be something UNDER the quilt...........and the kitty game was ON !!


Five seconds later they ran off, leaving a crumpled quilt.................  oh well.

This is a good lapsize quilt, and i'm hoping to get it quilted in time for a Christmas gift - we will see........

oh me oh my, tomorrow is Monday - oh well, it's off to work we go !

Kate

That quilt is beautiful - especially since you saved some star tips from demolition! Before you quilt it up, you might want to change the bottom leftmost block - the right side of that block is on backwards, so that the diagonal dark is not running thru correctly. So sorry, but a picture tells a thousand stories ... and I wanted you to know if you are giving this as a gift.
