Too bad I didn't let her claim it - I just let her try it on...

I like the scrappy kitties Cathy. Are they paper pieced? Pattern available? I guess it would be easy to draft the pattern but even easier to find the pattern, LOL

Caroline, there is a free pattern online that I sort of used. I didn't like the way the upright cat was pieced so changed that. I also went a bit smaller to get the 6.5 size. I've actually never paper pieced anything, but I've done plenty that would probably be easier that way. I'm still very much a novice when it comes to quilts.

I can't get the link to work - but that my be because of the filters since I'm in the office. I downloaded it at home last week with no problem. If you can't get it, send my a PM, I'm pretty sure I saved it to my computer at home. It's a PDF file.

Since there isn't much info 'out there' about this gadget, . . .

I had an opportunity to see one of these in real life on Saturday at our "Get-together" and Dorothy was able to show us the way it would work with the hem or facing folded up to the proper width and then sewn or basted.

Sorry only one other picture and much the same, but blurrier. It is just like yours.

It was James' but if you took it off your pinky and made a U-turn with it, that would be the position that it is used. So the ring portion would be on/near the fingernail and the open part would be facing your palm. I think Dorothy had it on her index finger.
