Stars Around the Garden and Kute Kitty

Time to make two more Stars Around the Garden blocks, one for each set. This set is so well-behaved, block completed without crisis:

Here is the group so far. Really am not sure how to set them or what to do for the central medallion. I guess I could actually follow the pattern and make the central floral applique for it, but let me know if you have any attractive notions. I have a lot of the background fabric and the one with the pears on it:

EQ can be a little trickster. You have to remember to check the size block it is going to print out templates for. I have this notion that it should remember what size I'm doing in which project file, but it remembers whatever you printed out last time, no matter which project. I did not look and did not realize until it was almost assembled that I was creating a 6" finished block, not the 9" finished block that I needed. Oh well, maybe I'll put the miniaturized one on the back next to the label.

My little pal Rembrandt:



Oh pleeese, pleeeeeeeese play with me:

Rembrandt discovered the fireplace screen today. She pulls it towards her with her teeth:

and watches it swing back and forth until it comes to a full stop:

Uh oh wouldn't want to come across this on a dark rainy night:

Rembrandt is probably the most 'unique' looking cat I have ever seen. It would be soooo hard to resist that face.....LOL
Good going on the Spiderweb, and I am soooooo impress by the re-organized stash, and envious as well! Big hugs, Finn

What ever you do don't follow the pattern! Do something different! It's always more fun!

Love Remmy! What a cutie! I've always loved the "alien super big ears" phase of kittenhood.

Using the smaller block for the back is a great idea! The blocks look fantastic!
