Cats on Walls

I worked on the Ohio Star kitty blocks; seaming them into a top 
and then took the leftover triangles and sewed them into half square triangles.  
My thought was to use them for a border.
  When I put them up on the design wall-my eyes jumped around like crazy! 
 To me, it is just too busy!
Time for plan B--and this one is calm and the kitty blocks hold the attention which is as it should be!

I will use the hst's for another quilt-perhaps as windmill blocks!

And for my art of the day, I did a lot of drawing!  
This one is from a picture in the newest KnitPicks catalog (p35, I think!)
 and I thought I would give it a try in my journal! 
 It was fun every step of the way!

  1. Yes, the second way is much better. Pretty!!

  2. Finally on my computer to comment, my phone and blogger don't play well together. Love the kitties, fabric and paper! The socks are wonderful, the painting lesson just perfect! Good point about signing your work. Have a good Tuesday!

    That drawing is perfectly adorable and I recognized it right away.

  7. Oh the drawing is so cute. I love your game with us and the drawings! Lovely quilt

  8. I am catching up backwards, so I’ve already seen the busy border turned into pinwheels instead — I agree! Good decision!
