Awww and Sparks Monday and POTP

On Tuesday, January 12, post I showed you two adorable abstract

kitty blocks that I would be using to complete a pieced block sampler of all the
blocks have learned.  Last week I put all the blocks together, then quilted the throw.
Here are the front and back
I was tickled to find this Grand Lodge fabric for the back

This quilt was inspired by my nephew Kat who is now an official
RVing Cat...I never in my wildest dreams had a clue how
KAT would do as an RV'er but he

I don't have a 'professional' quilting machine aka Long arm machine; however, Saucy my Singer Patchwork machine  does  have over many decorative stitches I can use
This was my very first attempt at quilting a decorative stitch.  I used #63.
All my other projects were quilted with a straight stitch.  Main reason is my fear of messing up a project. I made a sample to practice one. 
All in all, it went well and gave me courage to try again.


Now some close ups of a few of the squares and quilting.

Next two are my two of my favorite blocks
each of my kitties are quilted like the one below.  I used gold thread
and a wavy stitch.

I am crazy about novelty buttons...of course I have several styles of cat buttons!!

All my life, I have heard fish is food for the brain...
Today, I share some very brainy words of wisdom from a goldfish

I always keep my eyes open so that I can keep you all entertained.

Momster to Lightning, Misty and Timber is having surgery today to
repair a badly broken right arm.  She is right handed and  cannot blog so if you would like to
leave some healing words you may do so at the POTP

  1. We don't know anything about quilting but as ever are impressed by your efforts!
    Bertie says he is reluctant to take advice from a goldfish as he suspects that they are not brainy at all.
    Cheers! Gail.

  9. I love the quilt. You did quite well on using the wavy stitch.

    I hope Momster is all well very, very soon. With those 3 big puppies she needs both hands.

  11. this is really pretty, I like the backing a lot. and love the colors. I could not have buttons on blankies, big might choke on one.. just like having a toddler in the house, no candles with real flames, etc.. that is a really cool machine with all those stitches. my fvorite print on the quilt is the tiny RV's. adorable

  12. We love how your quilt came out and how you used that fancy stitching. Our paws are crossed tight that Kathie's surgery goes well today.

  13. Your quilting is amazing and Kat really is quite the inspiration for all of us. We dropped off a big bunch of purrs for Mom Kathie.

  14. I LOVE that quilt and the Kittie blocks...all things about it. Fabric, stitch and buttons. Oh mommy is green eyed with jellusness!

  15. Wow, those are so nice. I am okay-ish at sewing, but prefer knitting. Seeing your work however...
