A Super Cute Hexie Project!

My sweet new project from this, one of my favorite magazines!

 The instructions for this project are given to accommodate different size hexagons!  I have chosen to do 3/8th hexies!  I love tiny, but I really don't like doing the 1/4 inch ones.  That is just tooooo tiny!!!  Anyhow, I am making progress with this cute little project.  I am wondering if I should frame it or bind it!  Hmmm, I shall see what it tells me to do closer the end of the project.

Last of the Cat Quilts for a While!

 Hi folks!  Here is my third and last (so far) vegetable cat!  He is pepper puss!
 He reminds me of one of my cats.  Quiet fluffy, and fun!
 Here he is all quilted.
Here is the pattern - includes a recipe for Southwestern Stuffed Peppers.  I really like Pepper Puss!
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Stalker Cat

Hello!  The cat saga continues with Mr Stalker!  I am trying to reshuffle the photos on this post and find I am having marginal success.  However I did get the cut out pieces to appear as the first picture, albeit next to the second photo.
 Here is Mr Stalker appliqued to the background fabric and the borders stitched on too.

The pattern comes with a recipe - a delicious cream of Chicken and Winter Vegetable Soup.
Here is the completed quilt.  He is such an angular cat that I thought quilting with stars, which are quiet angular themselves, would be appropriate.  I love how these cats turned out.  I want to make a larger quilt with four cats put together in a bigger quilt for my kitchen.  Appropriate for the kitchen as they are vegetables.

Banana Cat

I have been working on some shop samples! Helen Knott has a series of garden patch cat patterns! This one is Banana Cat! He is so delightfully cute! Next on my list is Pepper Puss!

Sorry about the blurry photo.  You can see from the cover of the pattern that it includes a recipe.  Now that is double the value for your money.
I have used some Moda grunge fabric, which is awesome.

Isn't he a cute fellow?
