Wonky Cross Blocks Set

I've got no UFO Report today. Sorry. I thought about working on one of my UFOs, but I'm just not motivated right now to work on "old" projects. I'm having too much fun with new ones.

Yesterday I got my wonky cross blocks that I made at my retreat all pieced together.

Looks pretty good. I have no plan for this quilt. I just wanted to try making wonky cross blocks. I had fun making them but I'm not in a hurry to get it quilted. I want to do a fun back, a la Elizabeth Hartman, but first I need some yardage of the solids (white and aqua) and I'd like a half yard of one of the prints from this line - Origins Basic Gray by Moda.

I packed a zippered bag from a king size sheet set with fabric to take on my retreat. Goldie thought it made a nice bed.

I'm not sure how she stayed up on this precarious perch, but she slept like this for at least an hour!

Yesterday I unpacked the bag and put the fabrics back in their proper places. Goldie still likes the bag!

Maybe I need to make a quilted lining for this bag!

Love your retreat quilt! Well done!

Have you seen Kitty Cups which are round, soft, and snuggly cat beds? I imagine Goldie would LOVE a quilted flannel lining for her new bed!

You wonky cross quilt top turned out really nice. My granddaughter and I both enjoyed the pictures of Goldie. Isn't it funny how animals and children always find surfaces to lay/play on that we just spread out......?

That kitty is sure cute! I really like how your wonky cross turned out. Good call on the back. That should be perfect. You know, I always think I want to do a fancy back, but then I get in a hurry to just "get 'er done" and slap something together. Good girl for taking your time and figuring it out! :-)
