Blogger's BOM

I finally finished the border on the Blogger's BOM quilt. There were 96 rectangles to cut that measure 2.5 inches X 6.5 inches. The corners were 6.5 inches square. It's quite colorful! One of my daughter's friends already has her eye on this one. However, there is still much to do! I have to buy a backing and batting. The quilt has to be sandwiched and then quilted! Long process! However, the biggest step is done. I now have a quilt top!! I haven't measured it yet but I think it's about 60 inches square.

My new kitty, Lily, is settling in quite nicely. She seems happy and is very playful. Here's a picture of her napping on a pillowcase I made using cat fabrics. Very appropriate! Wish I could sleep as well!

    1. Thanks, Heather. The border took quite a while to make but I'm starting to like it. It's more colorful than my usual style. The new cat is so funny. She never walks anywhere, just runs constantly! Unless she's asleep as you can see!

    The piano key border looks great. Ties in all the colors.
