Hot and 16-Patch Blocks

I made the last of the 16-patch blocks yesterday.  I would have started to sew them together, but it was too hot in my sewing room.  I plan to do it today, even though it is not any cooler.  The city has declared today a 'heat alert' day.  They do this only when it is really hot!  But if I don't start sewing them together, Mimi will re-arrange them for me.


I left them on my design floor overnight.  Or as Mimi calls it, 'her design floor'.  I can see that she played on them, but she didn't roll them into small, tight sausages or mess them up too badly like she normally does. Maybe it was too hot for that.


Here she is, behind my half dead plant.  I wish I had trimmed those dead leaves off.  Thanks for not messing up my blocks last night, Mimi.  Was it too hot for you?

"Meow!  It was 'H-E-double hockey sticks' hot!  That's why I am hiding under this dead plant.  Thanks for not trimming it.  I love it this way!  Meow!!:

Your blocks look great! They're going to make a lovely quilt! :0)

The quilt looks wonderful. Will you just bind it or put a border on it? I like taking photos of mine because it gives me an idea as to what colours I need or have too many of.

I love the multicolor blocks. I may have to do one like that too. I'm glad Mimi didn't rearrange it for you.

Looks great Hetty. The heat is getting to everyone here too. My girls act pooped.
