Crazy Cats on Cavalcade

This was a small quilt I made from scraps, mostly cat themed. Several fun novelty fabrics which I put together with scraps from other projects.  



It came out pretty fun; I sent it out to a call for charity quilts for kids in Toledo after some tornados. 




I smiled at these fabrics while working on it, hopefully it's made some little kid smile a bit too.

for Irina - Pastel Baby Quilt

I recently made this from some fabrics I've collected & some other bits & pieces that have come my way.  Was obsessing over this pattern called Disappearing 9 Patch.

It's in the geometry & in the particular placement of the colors & patterns, cutting & then rearranging them further.  A simple layout resulting in a more complex looking pattern. Doing it in varied fabrics & patterns yields quite different results.

I'm pleased with the soft, dusty pastel looks of these colors. Soothing, calm, nice for a baby.









Am so pleased with the results.  Will be giving to a neighbor who has been helpful & kind to me, for his new baby girl.  Thanks Max!
