All Around the Town - Block #7...


Yippee!  Another block closer to the finish of All Around the Town.  This one is called the "cat house."  I'm glad my kitty isn't this big...he would eat me out of house and home.  (When they say "he's lies AROUND the house," they mean it!!)

I've got most of the pieces to the next block,the bottom left-hand corner, "quilt show today," prepped and ready to assemble.  I just need to make a couple of miniature quilt tops for the grassy lawn first.

Here are the first 6 blocks (the right half of the quilt).
And here is the picture from the front of the pattern (it is by Sue Garmon).

Have a great day in your town!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  3. AROUND the house! Snort!! (Reminds me of the old mother-in-law jokes..."She's so big, when she sits....") Wow! I love your block! I'd seen the pattern around but the photo on the cover doesn't really do it justice, does it!? Very cool! Is that a Sue Garman design?

  7. Oh, I just love this! It looks fantastic so far. I have this pattern in my stash (along with fabrics I think). I bought it years ago and I think that I better resurrect it. I'm just loving yours!!
