Recycled Quilt blocks.

Oh what to do with some left-over quilting blocks? Hmm well in this house there is usually a long things that need to be done and finding another bed for Tiger, who moults fur for England, has been on that list for some time.So, during some after school sessions I started to pin a few blocks together. After school I am not generally needed (sounds sad doesn't it?) the girls just need the time, space and advice when they get stuck, being exam work I do have to be careful how much I do. After several weeks of hovering, asking if they needed any help etc I decided to do some sewing instead. I do not remember seeing any of my teachers do what they taught and I am a firm believer that you should be able to do what you ask of others. I did not finish it so I brought it home and finished it before I went away last week.

I divided the blocks with some yellow strips that were in the bag. Now this bag was given to me about a year ago by a friend who was having a turn out. There is lots left and I am going to take them to work for Year 10 to have a practice on. " Waste not want not"! I will confess to not measuring anything, much of it was already cut to some degree. Sophie did ask if Tiger liked yellow or not which I thought was sweet. He did not seem to worry about the last blanket being bright orange!

The quilt stayed on the sofa for about 5 minutes before he settled himself down for a sleep. He is a little camera shy so this was the best picture i could get.

A happy cat on a new mat!

My posting has been a bit scant recently due to having problems installing my new computer anit-virus software. However Hubby has done it again and solved the problem! I knew there was a reason why I married him!

Back tomorrow.....

I like that quilt however unplanned you say it is. I've never known a cat turn his/her nose up at a nice warm cosy spot whatever the colour. I find with own children that the lessons they enjoy the most are the ones where their teachers actually join in and 'do' too.

(Rosie says that Tiger looks very cute!)

What a gorgeous quilt and all made from left overs. Fabulous! Tigger looks extremely happy with it and who wouldn't be. Pleased you have your anti virus sorted out. A husband does have his uses, your so right. Tee Hee. xx

Great idea ... I think he looks very comfy! Georgie has a little blanket at the moment, but I like the idea of making her a quilt. Mum has made her cat a lovely quilt. x
