More squares and cats
A geranium plant had smothered them but when it was cut back, they were fine. Such a lovely bright spot - obviously they thrive on neglect!
It has struck me that many quilters have cats, as I do, so I thought I would introduce you to the two who choose to share my home.
In order of seniority, there is Basil -
I wanted to show you also the small four patch quilt that is now quilted - yay!
And another quilt of squares, this time I came across it in an Op Shop, so brought it home. It had been badly washed and the turquoise material had bled but a gentle wash with a colour catcher has almost remedied that.
My granddaughters and I are in the process of putting buttons on to tie the squares - don't you love those colours? nothing subtle about this top!
I think I shall do some hand quilting this evening, I have a boxed set of "Auf Wiedersehen Pet" that I am looking forward to seeing again.
Thanks for stopping by.
