FMQ Friday - Purple Kats Kwilt

Well it has been a nice couple of weeks. Last weekend was a three day weekend and this was a four day weekend, thanks to the extra days I took off of work. I've been putting the time to good use, playing video games and sewing. We even went to see a movie, Iron Man 3. I think it was the best of them all.

Here is the purple kats kwilt UFO that I've been working on. Not only did I get all the quilting completed today, but I started stitching on the binding.

This was quite the adventure. There are puckers and ripples and about 50% of the time, the needle didn't go where it was supposed to go. A learning experience, we'll call it. Honestly, I'm not sure how I'm going to quilt anything much larger than this on my little sewing machine. We'll see what happens.

EDIT: I had some inquiries about the pattern for this quilt. The original pattern was by Patti Carey for Northcott and can be found here.

I also finished another stars block.

Two more to go for this quilt top, and then it will be done. I'm still considering doing this as a QAYG.

Well, two more days of my lovely mini-vacation to go!


  1. The blocks look great. I love the purple :)

  2. I love your purple cats! Where did you find the pattern?

    1. The original pattern was designed by Patti Carey for Northcott. I have added a link to the pattern in the blog post.

  3. This is a real nice top! I'va used this pattern, too. If you like to have a look on it:
    The stars are also great. They reminds me of an UFO of mine. ;)
