I’ve been working on these little oval appliques for a couple of months and have about 50 or 60 of them done so far. I’m using batiks and hand-dyes for this and just love how the rectangles are turning out. 225 of them are needed for the pattern — or possibly more, if I decide to make this a large bed quilt.
One table runner is quilted and the binding is almost finished but I can’t post a picture till after Christmas. Another one is going to be quilted today. My machine quilting skills aren’t fabulous — but they’re better than my machine piecing skills.
Lester seems to be doing better now that the vets have him on both Aspirin and Plavix. It’s so scary — every time he meows loudly I run to see if he’s okay and there he is playing with a toy and “talking” to it.
Oh Lester…did he have his tests? I am thinking of him and sending kitty love. I’m happy he’s playing when you hear him. You’re parenting skills are just fine. You’ll know the difference. I love these little oval blocks and can’t wait to see what they look like all together. I can’t even imagine!
Can’t wait to see what the ovals are used in.
I hope Lester is o.k., he sure is pretty. Mine are both on Rx diets… Thankfully I don’t have to give either one a pill – my girl becomes a big ole meany when I try!
