Tic Tac Cats



Yes, it looks like a giant tic-tac-toe at the moment (or Naughts & Crosses, as we call it here). I finished the last two cats today (bottom right) and joined the major pieces, but honestly, is there anything more boring than sashing? Seriously, I didn't have enough time to put the sashing pieces around the outside, so that will get done next time - perhaps tomorrow morning, before my life becomes consumed by Monsters and Aliens (a promised cinema trip), a pair of jeans for Olivia, finding a lunch venue that isn't McDonalds and an orthodontist appointment. Yes, the excitement of a school holiday takes some beating!

Anyway, the pale fabric goes all the way around the edges of the quilt as well, then there's a sawtooth border (yep, more piecing!) on the outside - quite a narrow one, and of course, that one's straight, so it's easy peasy.

I just love these cats Kate - I just wish their construction wasn't so reminiscent of NYB's - get thee behind me Satan!!!

Stunning quilt but I'm not sure about the sashing either. Maybe heavy quilting and a varigated thread? I think you've got the room in the sashing to do something really neat. I'm not sure about the thread, maybe do a test block first?

I love these blocks!

As someone who has only ever made one quilt, seeing other people's choices of fabrics and sashing is an education. I think this is going to be a wonderful quilt. x

I have that cat pattern, but I have yet to conjure up the nerve to start it...
