Smitty, over at Three Cat Ranch, stole her exquisite paw work. She says she has a patent on both the hard right paw tuck she is using here AND the hard left paw tuck that Smitty is using. That said, she also says she has always had outdoor privileges but has never wanted to use them until now. Of course, it all sounds like MEOW! MEOW! MEOW! MEOW!
In the end when push comes to shove, I predict Buddy is not going to have a good day.

While I haven't been at the sewing machine lately, Molly has. I wasn't paying attention to her, so she took that as her cue to chew at the thread as it traverses from cone to machine. I'm not to sure what happened except all of a sudden she was across the room next to me with thread in her mouth and wrapped around her. I first got it out of her mouth and then was pulling it from under her. She started to play with it. And yes, it took a lot of pulling and fussing before I realized that the thread was coming from across the room. Although I didn't get any sewing done, I did use up quite a bit of thread.

This means the one row underneath is exactly aligned to match. I pin both sides right under the fold. Then I carefully flip the back to the right side. The one row that I'm pinning is aligned underneath and does not move when I flip the rest of the back over. I pin the one aligned row. Then I repeat row by row until I come to the end. Because I began in the middle, I next row by row to complete the other side.

The inspiration for this quilt comes from Garden Mosaic, a pattern from Free Spirit. I did not follow the instructions, however. I made this using strips to make bat wings. You can find out more here.

Yup, when I took it to the wall, I cocked my head and realized the sashing had been fine. My problem was that I had sewn the top panels together along the long edge instead of the short edge. Oops. Where's my seam ripper...
