Quilt Therapy Thursday

There were only 2 of us this week and in spite of the few in numbers we used each other to further our work on our quilts.  Pierina has finished her tree quilt.  It is called Tree's Up! Lights On!.  Here is a link to the pattern if you are interested in seeing what she started with.

Tree's Up! Lights On!

That is the binding in the picture.  She used the colours
of the quilt and cut them into sections
so that the binding was a collection of the
fabrics and colours used in the quilt.

I was working on my cat quilt and was able to put the side borders on to it.  I put the dark green on first and then sewed the three pieces of the side border together and sewed it onto the quilt as one unit.  I will do the same for the top and bottom but add corner stones to the four corners.

It was a slow process because I had
to sew the black and orange
squares together first and then add
the light green border.

More Blocks finished and an Orange Cat

I have been working on some more of my Block of the Months

February 1 Blocks
These are paper pieced and I hope there aren't too many more.
I am not a big fan of paper piecing.

Tomorrow I will go and get the borders to finish this quilt.  This little kitten was made entirely from my stash.  I am going to make the borders slightly larger, and will post pictures when finished.  I hope I can find a backing fabric with cats on it.
