I’m taking advantage of a typical August day in New Jersey – Hazy, Hot, and Humid by finishing up my Black Cats and Pumpkins quilt. I constructed the 36 – 6″ star squares last night during Sew What and spent th
is morning assembling the quilt. It is copy of a quilt I found on Pinterest (Oy… Pinterest. Enough said). I used Lori Holt’s patterns for the pumpkins and Stars from her Vintage Farm Girl book and downloaded her pattern for the cat from her blog – Bee In My Bonnet.
I add a 1/8” stay stitch around the circumference of my quilts before I quilt them or send them off to be quilted on the long arm. This is something new I have just added into my quilting regime. Chris – my long arm guru – took me that it keeps the quilt from distorting when on the frame. So I do it.
I haven’t decided to add borders or not. The original pin has – what I think – is a 2″ inner border and maybe a 4″ or a 5″ outer border. Here is it without any borders. What do you think? To border or not to border?
For some reason I feel this need to hunting for a Snickers bar. #Some treats!!
