    Carrie is going to get redone eventually. I'm not a fan of the dark green with the black. I wanted the black to look like bowties, but they get lost in the green, if I put a more subdued solid, it will accentuate the bowtie. Cat, I love. Look closely at the navy pieces, there are little hearts.

    I wanted Carrie to be pretty for our own pretty CarrieM. Love the fabrics you ladies chose for these blocks; what a difference fabric makes as to how these blocks look.Name:  21 & 22.jpg

    I almost forgot it was Tuesday, you ladies have such a eye for matching, takes all my effort to follow the colors and patterns in the book, well here is mine for this week, hope all are feeling better, and that the move is settling in, storms have stopped down south, and ladies the nurse in the group says don't forget you flu shot, it has started.

    Funny, I ran out Monday morning after I miss cut the fabric that I was going to use, had to go to JoAnn's to get the fabric last minute since I didn't have anything to go with red and orange, the closet quilt shop is more then 2 hours away, kind of bright for thirty quilt but I do like it, lol

    I think I like cats....adopted ten of them and one is a house cat that stays inside. Mega gives us much joy and laughter.

    I have not always been using the 1930 reproduction, but the fabric seems to work for me. I liked the Carrie block; my DGM's name was Carrie...but she hated being called, 'Miss Carrie' in her teaching career when she was young.. I know our CarrieM loves green and purple, so that was my colors there.

    Sounds like everyone is on the mend now, which is good. I am off to see the Cancer skin Doctor and hope the report is good...had enough 'nose' jobs for my lifetime! LOL! Where else we stop, noboby knows as there are at least three or four quilt shops in DM...later..

    Now you have inspired me lol...

    I do love cats as well but can't have them because I have the dogs. I put them in quilts and paint them lol.

    Here's my Cat! It's a tad small for some reason, so I'll have to add a teeny border around it. Cut off some points, but I don't mind.
