Cutting the Border

I decided to cut the chicken wire border edge to edge...or almost edge to edge. I want the wire bits to match up around the border.  Buddy, however, thinks I should have cut the border along the diagonal.

Then Buddy tried to convince me by using his best cat imitation. I had quite a laugh.

Speedy Chicken Top

The speedy chickens are all assembled into a quilt top...without the border though. I don't know about you, but it looks as though something is missing.

Okay, that looks a lot better.

For those of you who like a detail shot, here you go.

The cutting table was so full of supervisors, I didn't even bother to try cutting the borders.

And now the cutting table is being used as a conference table.

Strips, chickens and cats

I'm still working on the dementor/tormentor quilt. I have a large stack of strips that have to be trimmed into two inch sections. Happily, I can nestle two strips on top of each other to cut two at a time.

And I'm still putting together the chickens with horizontal sashing.

And then I'm going to surround them with rainbow chicken wire.

And yes, I like fabric, but not as much as Buddy likes playing laser mouse. Molly likes to set up strategic pounces, while Buddy prefers pure frenzy.

Fish Review

There was absolutely no sewing today. However, this weekend I helped at a local quilt show. And this is the quilt I submitted.

This was not in the show because its still a quilt top.

These were not in the show because they are quilt blocks. And so ends this episode of quilt guilt.

And now I have to go attend to yeowing cat guilt.

Green Kittens

Here is a litter of green kittens. If you would like to see more green, visit the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.

And if you want the attention-seeking you go.

Owl Quilt Basting

A little bit of progress each day and I finally have the owl quilt laid out on the cutting table for layering. Of course, Buddy has been jumping up on the table, feels the pins stick him, and then he pulls at them in retaliation. And, of course, I wouldn't have gotten this far if Molly wasn't off in another room taking a nap.

Blog Review

Today I pressed all of the demented/tormented strips and began slicing them. I also cut 2.5 yard strips for the speedy chicken sashing rows. Molly and Buddy tried to help me cut the long sashing strips if help means "annoyed me to exasperation." Now Molly is giving you her review of my blog post and more generally, my life.
