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.
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.
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.
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.
