AMG-Aunt Millie's Garden

this Cat tree is in my bedroom..you can see why there is a window there to peer outta...Molly is usually the one on top.. the next one is my only handsome dude Joey..isn't he the "cat's meow" I love those dark grey strips upon his silver fur.. and that long skinny tail. And he is a charmer.


Molly thinks the best thing to do is jump from that pedestal to the bed while I am sleeping..
I am not impressed... she should be wearing a little "kitty kape"-screeching "geronimo"!!!



















well I thought I would post a pic of what they all look like together so far..
I still have to play around with the blocks alittle and still have another 4 to do.. I have the one on the top right done now too.. next time.. but you can see that the pieced background will work.. I think I will put some sashing to go with the blocks.. I know I know can't make up my mind!!


since I took this pic.. I have rearranged the blocks with the new one and it blends in better. It is best to audition your blocks together to try to get a variety of color and see what you are using to much of.. I can see.. that I am favoring the orange/rust colors.. time to touch it up a notch..
well get back to sewing Blogger friends so you can post what you have been doing and so that I can take a peek.
piecefully quilting..

  3. Deb - the blocks are stunning! And the cats are pretty darned good looking too! I tried out the back basting applique technique you recommended and it works well! Can't wait to see the finished quilt top!

  10. Those blocks are stunning! :)

    It's a good thing my cats don't read blogs... they would be sooo jealous of your kitties' fabulously tall cat condo.

  13. Deb - all I can say is AWESOME! Those blocks are wonderful - and I love that you chose to do it differently from the pattern colours......the "kitties" are adorable. My Simon is now taking over the end of my bed at night while the "Big Brown Thing" (Bosley) is asleep on the floor. It is really funny to watch the goings on when I wake up in the morning......

    All the best,

    Jo-Ann

    I just recently took applique lessons (I'm a piecer) and our instructor, who is heading up a group of eight or ten who are doing this, displayed her blocks for us beginners. Hers is terrific, as is yours, but I very much like the pieced block style you used - very, very nice. Maybe I can play with the 'big girls' in another ten years!!! LOL
