Perfect Sewing Day

 It's rainy and stormy here today so I decided it was a good day to stay in the sewing room.  So I spent some morning pajama time and sewed on Nabby's Dowry from Heartspun Quilts. (You can do a search on her site if you want the 12 clues to this little quilt.)  Then I had to shower and get dressed! I had to run into town to pick up license tabs for the Beloved Bronco and grab some Taco Bell to bring home for lunch. After lunch, I decided to get my little quilt top finished.

Pam's blocks finish at 6" but I had a bin full of 1 1/2" half square triangles so I made my blocks 4".  After sewing the sashings on, it was time to figure out the setting triangles.

Bonnie has a fabulous page at Quiltville with Tips and Techniques so I went there to figure out my triangles. I wrote myself a little bit of encouragement before I started cutting.  Then I cut.  Whoopsie! Then I recut!  No big deal, it's only fabric.  And now it is done and ready to quilt. 

As I was sewing, I kept hearing some funny little noises. I knew Sally was in the sewing room but was shocked when I saw her in the garbage.  Crazy Cat!

Wow, Judy, that is a beauty! Looks like a scattering of jewels. Funny kittycat!

I love the soft color you used for the setting triangles. I am still auditioning mine...
