Modern Monday Quilt Along

Block 44:

I cut this one at 6.5" by 7" instead of 6.5" square. I like the extra background fabric on the bottom. If necessary, when I put the blocks together I can trim it down some.

Go see Caroll's apron block at Attic Window Quilt Shop. Then visit Jenifer at 42 Quilts to see what we will be making this week.

Family Update:

As most of you know, our 2 year old cat, Goldie, died last month. I still miss her, but our house just didn't seem right without a cat around. We've been looking for the right cat for our family for a little while and found one yesterday afternoon.

I didn't crop out my shoes for scale. I wear a women's size 8.

He/she is tiny! Only 2 months old. I say "he/she" because the people we got him/her from said it's a male. I'm not so sure though. If it is a boy, his name will be Oscar. If it is a girl we haven't picked a name yet. I will be making a vet. appointment today to get shots and have it's eyes looked at since they are a bit goopy. Boy or girl, it sure is cute! Very friendly, so far is using the litter box but I'm not letting it roam the house at will yet. The house feels better now.

What a dear wee kitten. I know what you mean re a 'catless' house. We no longer have our cat and I do miss him. He was black like your kitten.

Oh, congratulations! The kitten is so cute. I know you'll still miss Goldie, but this one is a cutie, too. Cute block. I was thinking it looked like a skirt until you said "apron." Then, I said, "Of course!" LOL.
