Red Cats

My red stash is more like a small pile of mostly intact fat quarters.  WELL, this is great because I do not need many red cats for my pattern!

You may think that I got off easy this month, NOPE!  I was finishing up the blue cats from February. 
Someone got off pattern on one of these...

Only three red cats are needed.

A tame red stash.

February: Blue Cats

Angela at is hosting a rainbow themed quilt-along.  In 2017 each month will be assigned a color and it is the participants job to sew/quilt a project with the color theme.  You are allowed to make adjustments to this rule as you need to.  This month's color is turquoise and based on my fabric stash I decided to make February my blue month.  I will be following the Catvent pattern from I have 10 blue cats so far.  It was so much fun creating them.

Wild Finish

I finished the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016.  Seven of the nine rows have some resemblance or same pattern as the suggested block layout.  This quilt is called Wild.

Sushi Quilt(s)

I saw this sushi quilt pattern at Hunter's Design Studio and knew I would have fun with this project.

This color block quilt rolls up to mimic the color combination of a sushi roll.  Per the awesome directions with the pattern, I used the pillow method on this one.

It looks just like Sushi!

You can see that I attempted to add some quilting texture.
 The recipient of this quilt called me to let me know that my quilting of the 'salmon' was the best representation of meat in fabric ever!  (I am sure it is not.)

The back of the quilt

I made two quilts with this pattern and call the second one "Bonus Sushi."

Bonus Sushi

This one has Enchanted Forest Rice.

Sushi quilt was a quilting exercise for me while Bonus Sushi was a color placement exercise for me.
