Final Fiction Friday, Nature and Feline Flashback Friday

 This is my Final Fiction Friday 

Mama always said idle hands are the devil's workshop.

Just a wee post to show you all that my hands have not been idle. The pattern is called square in square.  It is simple.

First collage top left shows the Feline Friday.  

I thank our hostess Comedy Plus

The back of the quilt is all felines...
The remainder of the collages show up close on each sq. The sq. with the cross stitch heart 'I love U MU' was a Mother's Day gift my daughter made when she was a teenager. I took it out of the frame to incorporate into quilt.   

Pandas were a package of handkerchiefs that were given to me by a Physics PhD student. I have had them since the late 1990's.
I was so happy to be able to incorporate them into this Memory quilt.
A dear friend of mine heard about my love of buttons. She found a package of assorted buttons on eBay sent them to me.
My quilting is decorative stitches built into my machine. 

The below square was a patch of free hand embroidery on a table cloth that Margie, my mother-in-law made. Unfortunately the cloth has some stains on it I had to cut around stains so it is a wee bit crooked.

Last but not least the entire quilt

Thank you all for indulging my quilting obsession 

We started blogging in June 2009.

My first February 26 post was a Friday in 2010.

Flashback Madi was all about posing.

February 26, 2010 was Levi Strauss Day, according to a Whimsical calendar.

I, Madi,  was MIA on yesterday's post because I was out shopping for Levis to model today. I could not find any Levi's with four leg holes so I'm content to just sit on Mom's Levi's in honor of the day.

After 87 years of rain, the last 5 days have been gorgeous
Look at our blue skies
