It's been awhile since the first post but since I'm new to this I didn't really know what to post.
If you check my last post you can see what I got in the mail from Fat Quarter Shop. I was going to put it on the back burner and finish a Falling Charms quilt but I just happened to get up from the table for just a few seconds and this happened.
Her mother was a semi feral cat that I had been trying to tame enough so I could get her spayed. I didn't even know she was pregnant until I walked out on my deck on August 29, 2011 and found two just born kittens just laying there. The mother did not want anything to do with them so I picked them both up, grabbed the blow dryer and started warming them up. They were so cold I didn't think either of them were going to live. Once they were warm, I called the vet and she walked me thru cutting the cord and keeping them warm. I spent the next three weeks waking up every two hours to feed them.
Cricket and Crystal
I am so happy that you saved my life, I think I'll just settle in here!

Anyway, long story short, I succeeded in hand raising them and when it came time to find them new homes I just couldn't part with Cricket because I couldn't resist her little alien eyes. I found a great home for Crystal and finally tamed their mom enough that my sister adopted her after she was spayed.
Cricket is a great quilt inspector except when she decides to inspect one before I'm done. Since she was busy testing the one I was working on I decided to start on the BOM and as you can see didn't stop until I had all the blocks done.
I don't like the way the pattern calls for them to be set together so am ordering extra fabric for the borders and should be able to put it together next week.
I totally fell in love with this block and am also ordering fabric to make an entire quilt from this block. Maybe a gift for my niece for Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by and I'll try and post more often than once a month.
