Hi all!
I am such a problem solver! :)

We are going on a trip, I had too much in my suitcase, but look what a couple of vacuum packs and luggage cubes can do!  (pat, pat)
As my family says, "you can't stop her"!  And room to spare. 
I am just finishing up a new version of LAP KITTIES using batiks.  Click to see pattern.
I finally finished my LAP KITTIES quilt, and it is hanging in the store.  On Saturday, the class asked what batting I had used, as it was sooo soft.  It is 80% Cotton, 20% Polyester from Hobbs (80/20).  I think the batik wide back I used is also very soft and fluid, adding to the soft, cuddly effect!
What is is about CATS & SEWING? My friend Sylvia posted that question along with picture of her black cat, on the left. And on the right, my Meiko, napping on the quilt I have laid out to sew rows together. Made it a challenge! LOL
Also, keeping softness & drapability in mind, I had the quilt quilted before I applied the appliques.

Then, I cut out the center of the paper backed fusible web product, before applying to back of the black fabric.

 So, only the edges are fused, and I did a machine buttonhole stitch around all the edges.  I really like how it turned out.

Ironically, I didn't get any pictures of the cats lying on this quilt.  That would have been really cute, applique cats & real cats, who can tell the difference! LOL
Tomorrow, we'll start a new SAMPLER QUILT CLASS.  It will meet for 12 months, always on the 3rd Thursday of the month, 10 a.m. & 6:30 p.m.

You will make a FEATHERED STAR, using any color fabrics you wish!

We'll have kits for two versions  and will be happy to help you with other selections & fabric placements too.  Pattern included with class fee, so let us know if you already own this pattern.

First class:  Thursday Sept. 17th.
Last eletter I mentioned that our friend had won the "first pitch" at the Royals game.  It was a blast!  My husband got to catch, and I almost missed the entire thing when I noticed that Randy was on the Jumbotron!!!

We are heading out for a bit of vacation before CENTRAL KANSAS QUILT SHOP HOP.  

Please to to www.CentralKansasQuiltShopHop.4t.com where you can get all the details and see all the finished quilts.  

Shop Hop starts Friday October 2nd.  It is FREE!  But you might win a $500 Shopping Spree, so check out the details!
