|Sundae, my smart & missed kitty|
Anyhow, I have a fat cat, Cinnamon, who is keeping me company, and she misses her playmate for hide'n'seek.
First, the new project. This is a picture of my new quilt project that I'm working on during my sewing days with a super-duper BFF, inspired by Freckled Whimsy's geese posted on the Moda Bake Shop. I've changed out a couple and added some more aquas. I have to say, Kate Spain made some awesome fabric, too bad there is only the cobblestone print in the grey-brown color. I'll manage to live without finding the color at the moment. *sigh*
Done with the NEW update. . . onto the old project.
When I lived in Bishop, CA, I was a member of the quilt guild. It was something to do, get to know some awesome women, and learn how to quilt some things I normally would not think of. I pulled this oldie but goodie: Watermelon Stripper Round Robin.

I surrounded the entire quilt with a thin, reflective black type of fabric. It was a metallic silver sheen printed on top of black. Then I used teddy bears with watermelons fabric in the pieced border to widen the quilt out so it is not as vertical.
The blank blocks will have watermelon pieces ironed on from another fabric that I had. Yes, I happen to buy cute, adorable watermelon fabric because I love it so much. I have managed to see ugly ones, those I pretend do not exist. :-) I am stuck in the cutting out the watermelon pieces, thus, thought it would be grand to show my progress with hopes that it'll motivate me to do some more sewing.
