I put the August installment up last night so those of you playing along on this project – don’t forget to collect it.
How are you doing on your PatchKats? Are you caught up? Fallen behind? Not started yet? I’m getting a small amount of devilish pleasure because friend Janet P left a comment that I’m ahead of her on this one. 🙂 On probably all of the patterns that I put on the blog or through The Quilting Post – Janet finishes them in record time and my own versions are in various states of “undone.” Of course I could fall off the quilting wagon at any moment and she could speed right by me (not that it’s a race) but for the moment I’m feeling pretty darn good about my progress on this one.
Speaking of which – more of those holes have been filled in since I posted yesterday’s photo.
The top and bottom rows are complete and I’m working on the hineys of the rest of the right facing Kats. I lost one of the pieces last night and decided to call it quits. This morning – still didn’t find it but found the very last scrap of that fabric and was able to just get the piece I needed out of it.
When I was layering and cutting tail sections for multiple Kats, I didn’t realize until I was starting to put them together that one of the fabrics was short so when I laid out the stack -one short piece in the middle of the stack and I’m not sure I have any leftovers of that fabric so I think that Kat may just get a different colored tail. There’s always got to be a “rebel” Kat in the litter.
Yesterday I was thinking about what new project I want to work on next after this one is done.
I keep coming back to this lovely stack. Aren’t they pretty.
They are Robert Kaufman, Vincent Van Gogh blenders — a birthday present to me with an Amazon gift card from one of my bosses. I definitely want to cut into these beauties but haven’t decided how I want to use them. Probably just something simple so it’s all about the lovely colors.
Now back to stitchin’ Kats.
