With a Little Help from Mimi

If you came here to see 'Sky Watch Friday', it is in the post just below this one. Just scroll down.

For all you quilters out there, I just finished the Block Party block for week 48. Can you believe it's week 48 already? This one is called 'Indian Star'. The block was very easy. It only measures 8 inches square. I had some of my seasonal fabrics out, so I did this one in Christmas fabrics. I like how it turned out.

Mimi - "Meow! I want to see it! Hmmmmm. It's not bad, but it's kinda small."

Me - "I know Mimi. But it is supposed to be that size."

Mimi - "Oh, I think you should make some more blocks and make a blanket for me. Meow! I love this block! Meow, please, meow?"

Me - "Well, okay Mimi. There was a pattern for a small table runner with this block. Maybe I will try that."

Mimi - "Oh, boy! I love this. And it's for the table. I can sleep on it on the table. Purrrr!"

Me - "Well, we'll have to see about that."

I didn't use the pattern that was on Quilters Cache for the runner. I don't like templates when I am machine piecing, so I made it up as I went along. I still have to sandwich and quilt it, but I think I will use one of the free-motion machine patterns I learned last week. I have a lot of other things to sandwich today too. Better get going. I also want to take my scooter up to the yarn store and it looks as if it is going to rain soon. It's cold and dreary outside. Yeah, I guess it is week 48 of this year. Christmas is less than a month away!

I love that block and in Christmas colors, it's extra-pretty!

Cara said...

Very cute. One of my maltese does that when we wants to claim one of my quilts. He's quite insistent, and gives the best/worst puppy eyes if you take it away.

Mimi isn't the only one that loves that block. I love that you used the Christmas fabrics. I love it, love it, love it.

A very lovely quilt block. Mimi is just gorgeous!

If cats could speak.....
But Mimi does not need to.
She shows how she really likes those blocks.
And she usually gets her way with what she thinks.
But then she has a great interpretator who loves her so much, she knows exactly what is going on in Mimi's mind.
They are inseparable.
