Design Wall Monday 06-30-14

I started a new project on Saturday – Crazy Cats by Buggy Barn.  This has been on my to-do list for awhile, so now it was time.  Crazy Cats is the first Buggy Barn pattern that I have made and the blocks sewed up faster than I thought they would.

063014    (1024x670)This isn’t a black & white photograph – these are black & gray quilt blocks.  There will be some red flower blocks for some color.  Also I am changing the pattern a bit by reversing half of the cat blocks.

The fabric on the left is some Kona Bay cat fabric from 2011 that will be incorporated into the quilt top.  I was checking out the internet to see if I could find some more of this fabric for a border.  There is a store in Australia that has some yardage for $20.00 a yard, but I decided pass on that and just use the yard that I have.

Check out all the other quilty goodness at Judy’s Design Wall Monday.

      Thank you for the website suggestion. I did check it out and found another store that has the black cat fabric – the store is in New Zealand and the fabric is $24.50 a yard. I think that I should just be happy with what I have. I will remember this site for future fabric hunting.

    I too want to make one of Buggy Barn’s fun patterns. But who knows when I’ll get to it. Your cats are so cute.

      I would recommend their designs. It is fun to see the cats taking shape and the blocks go together quickly. Thank you for stopping by.
