Falling In Love Again

...with Electronica. Thank goodness for our Finish Along as that was the only reason I pulled these blocks out, pressed them and squared them so they are all ready to be sewn into a top.  I have a totally renewed interest in this quilt and can not wait to see it finished!


I had a little helper while I was trying to get organized.  I placed each block out on the floor of my sewing room arranged just how I wanted them.  Little Clarkson felt the need to either test them out by sitting on them or re-arranging them as he wanted.  I got one row pieced before he joined me.  The place is a mess, so I'll start again tomorrow.  

You'll also see a little bag there in Sweetest Thing fabric.  I'll tell you all about that later :)

Very striking blocks, glad Clarkson approves, always good to get a cat's opinion.

I am agreeing with Sheila- it's good to have a second opinion, even if it is just the cat! It's looking great!

I always think blocks change character a bit once they get sewn up, and quilted. I think you will love this one when it's finished. Jxo

Cats just have a knack of wanting to sit where we don't want them, don't they? Lovely blocks.

Looks like you shouldn't have let the cat out of the bag.

Lovely blocks, beautiful kitty.
