Circuit Rider's Quilt

**note: all pattern orders going out today; thank you for ordering :-) **

Began Circuit Rider's Quilt along with the Little Quilts BOM that began Saturday, with the same background as the BOM, but with different fabrics. Had every intention of reproducing the original fabrics as closely as possible, but instead picked up this great old plaid and will be using that for stems and leaves along with rust and other accents:

(The blue graph lines of the cardboard cutting board showed, so I filled the background, that's why it doesn't look much like fabric).

My very dear pal:

I am proud of my new camera; please enlarge Rembrandt's picture to see the close-up!

and a Stickle:

Good morning Karen and Rembrandt. R. is looking very sweet this morning!
I love the plaid on the stems. Looks fantastic.

Your blocks are beautiful// though I am not a quilter, I like looking at the process of making quilts (may be, one day...)... and I also like Rembrant.

Karen what a unique applique block.
I just love how you make everything look so unique and special.

Nice clear photo. What kind of camera do you have now?

No one ever went wrong when adding plaid to a quilt - the block and Rembrandt look great. What kind of camera did you get?

Karen said...

Rembrandt has such a great face! My sister has a blog (www.toomanytails.blogspot.com) of her cats. Lots of wonderful pictures.

That is a really nice DJ block. I could see the whole quilt done in that fabric.

I love the colors of your Circuit Rider's Quilt. I signed up for the Little Quilts Saturday BOM via mail since I don't get to Marietta much and I missed doing their BOM. Rembrandt is posing so nicely for your new camera!

I love your Rembrandt from afar (Nebraska cat lover), and I'm glad to see you are making the Circuit Rider Quilt - isn't it a wonderful quilt! Look forward to seeing more blocks.

Rembrandt is very photogenic! The picture looks awesome... you are making me want a new camera now!

I love the plaid you're using for the stems and leaves in your BOM block. And, as always, your Stickle block looks amazing. You do such beautiful work! :)

Rembrant's photo came out great - such an active kitty! One of my stray cats cut his paw on the ice yesterday, poor thing - but he was snug in his insulated outdoor cat house and meowing like crazy this morning for food and seems to be walking ok so hopefully it is nothing serious - not like I can catch him to look anyway wild thing that he is. Love your blocks - you have a great sewing skill!
Cheers! Evelyn

Karen,
Your Circut Rider Tulp stems and leaves are so
appealing. I'd like to try that. Good Show!
