Mini Cat Wall Hanging

Hey everyone! I wanted to share this mini cat wall hanging I made for my Mother in Law for Mother's day.  The pattern is by Oh Fransson called, The Cat.

 It's a super cute pattern and I would love to make myself a lap size quilt. I'll have to add that to my ever growing wish list.
This was a last minute project and I rushed it. I was in such a hurry to get this done, not to mention it was 1:00 am and I was falling asleep, I totally stretched out the top when I basted it and the blocks turned out wonky. And my binding sucks. I have learned my lesson, don't quilt when your half asleep. Oh well, she still loved it. I guess that's all that matters.

Have a great weekend!

Piccadily Dutch Pinwheel

Life has been super crazy for me lately. My baby started walking last week and all I have wanted to do is cry. I just can't believe how much she has grown. My five year old was super sweet and said, "Mommy I'll always be your baby".  I just melted. Then I realized it doesn't matter how old they get, they will always be my babies. Okay enough with the sappy mommy stuff. I bought some new fabric from Joann's, Piccadily by Denyse Schmidt.

I had seen this quilt, by Crazy Mom Quilts, and knew I had to take a trip to Joann's. To me it's sort of a odd combo of fabrics, and I love that. They are just so pretty! I couldn't wait to cut into them! It took me a couple of days, but I finally decided to make some Dutch Pinwheel blocks.  I really love this block! It's just simply beautiful.

I used Kona white and some grey crosshatch has background fabric. I wasn't sure how the grey would look, but I decided just to go for it. And I love it! Can't wait to start making some more!
