The Kittens Quilt.....Piecing the Blocks


This is what the Thread Shed looks like today:



Just out the window is the red barn,

that is where the bottle calves live...





Number 25 the orphan calf on the right

The dairy calf is on the left

I have been bottle feeding these guys for 
5 months now.

I watch them while I sew, 
they are good company.




I am piecing The Kittens Quilt

Pattern by Elizabeth Hartman


I rarely work from a pattern these days...

so I am a bit rusty following directions....eeek!











This is the color story I am working from...

Bright and Cheerful











Kitten cut out and ready to piece...





Kitten block pieced





With so many tiny pieces,

I set up an ironing station close by...





Vintage Travel Iron

General Electric Sew and Press






























It is just like riding a bike...

the precision cutting and piecing skills 

are coming back to me.

20 Kitten Blocks Done.

10 more to go.


More To Come!

Wow. 20 Kitten blocks done. You are close. Going to be purrfect. I'm impressed how big Number 25, especially given he was an orphan. You made a BIG difference.

Cute kittens! I want to do something "cat-like" for my sister. I keep buying cat fabric, but I'm still not sure if I should do something with that or get the kitty pattern and do a lap quilt with that.
I like the colors you are using.

What an adorable pattern!! And your color choices are perfect! Makes such an interesting and fun quilt!!! The orphans look great!!! Love the combo of art work and farm life! But then I'm sure you do as well! HA
