Tuxedo Cats BOM – Block #9

A big thank you to all of you for your patience and especially those who took the time to leave a comment. I know that I don’t owe anybody anything but the internet can be a weird place. Being a perfectionist and overachiever I realize that I am usually putting more pressure on myself than necessary, so not publishing the block on time is a big thing for me. Progress, I guess 🙂 And thanks for all the good wishes for my son. He is already starting his third year at the university, time sure flies. He just added math as a second major, “for fun”. I am sure that anyone who thinks college level math is fun, will do just fine. Speaking of fun, our Tuxedo Cat has his Ginger Cat buddy with him in September’s free pattern. Those two must be watching something interesting… probably birds or squirrels. The pattern will be available for free download until the end of the month and move to the store section when the October block is published.

Anne of Green Gables

It doesn’t get more Canadian than Anne of Green Gables! Darlene purchased these kits for five Anne-themed wall hangings in a quilt shop on Prince Edward Island, Anne’s home province. She decided to combine the five blocks into one big quilt, and I was thrilled when she asked me to quilt it for her. I had a blast coming up with different designs to enhance the background. It was a bit tricky quilting through all those layers of fusible, and I had to make a few compromises to make it work but it ended up being one of my favourite projects ever. For some reason I didn’t take a picture of the whole quilt but you wouldn’t be able to see all the details anyway.

Pretty Pinwheels

Barb made this pretty quilt as a gift for the baby daughter of friends. The quilting design is called “Wandering Daisies” and was just right for this cute girly quilt in all my favourite colours.

Tuxedo Cats Block #9 – Please Read

September 1 is coming up, and there is no way that I can find the time to publish the next block on that day, with our son moving into a dorm room. Move in day is always crazy, and I am not going to put more pressure on myself, trying to get everything up and running on the blog and across social media while helping him move. I will publish the September block on September 2 at the usual time (9 am PDT), and the August block will stay available for free download until then. Thank you for understanding.

Dinosaurs

This quilt featuring dinosaurs is the second of two that Maureen made for her grandchildren to take on camping trips this summer. The quilting design, “Celtic Scroll”, is the same we used for the other one, it was all this quilt needed as there was already so much going on.

Birds

Maureen made this cheerful quilt from colourful Laurel Burch fabrics. This is the first of two she made for her grandkids to take on their camping trips this summer. I really like the layout of this one, a very effective pattern. The quilting design is “Celtic Scroll”, we decided to keep it simple.

Latte Macchiato Stars

Jean made this wonderful quilt in subtle neutrals that reminded me of milk and coffee. She chose the quilting desing “Swirling Feathers” which filled all that negative space between the star blocks nicely.

P.S. I Love You

This super cute girly quilt in pink was made by Lynne as a gift for her granddaughter. She asked for a quilting design with hearts, this one is called “P.S. I Love You”. The back is cozy bright pink flannel with a very special embroidered label.

Judy Niemeyer Flower Garden

Lynne made this quilt designed by Judy Niemeyer in a class. This isn’t her first Judy Niemeyer project but the first that has appliqué. She asked for an overall quilting pattern and chose the design “Ginger Flower” for her quilt. This is a huge quilt that was difficult to photograph, and the pictures don’t do it justice at all but this was the best I could do.

Tuxedo Cats BOM – Block #8

I hope you are all enjoying your summer and doing fun things while the weather is good. Or stay inside and sew, if it gets too hot. I seem to be allergic to something and spend a lot of time hiding inside, hoping we will either figure out what’s going on or it will just go away. But looking on the bright side, I am getting a lot of sewing done and finally feel I am accomplishing something. I am actually writing this a week in advance… a whole week, that’s absolutely unheard of 🙂 This month’s block shows a stretching kitty, probably just woke up from a nap. It will be available for free until the end of August but please make sure you download right away as I am not sure yet about the timing for next month’s block. My son will be moving from off campus to a dorm room for the next term, and we will be busy Labour Day weekend helping him move. I might have to post the September block earlier or later, but I will definitely announce in advance what I am going to do.

Tuxedo Cat #8


Edit: The next block has been published, and the August block has moved to the store section. It is available for purchase now, in case you missed the free download.

54-40 or Fight

“54-40 or Fight” is the name of one of the blocks Ellen used for this quilt. She alternated them with different blocks to achieve a secondary circular pattern. Isn’t this an amazing quilt? Ellen usually quilts her own quilts but this one is a special gift, and I was happy to quilt it for her. She had even come up with most of the quilting design before she dropped of her quilt, she wanted it to emphasize the secondary circles. For the back, she pieced her leftover fabrics and blocks, and I really like how the quilting looks from the back, like stars and flowers on a cross-hatched background. What a fun project to work on!
