Catkin Quilt Top Finished

It's finally finished, the quilt top that is! Catkin Around the World. Fabric designed by Julie Paschkis & quilt designed by Jason Yenter for In The Beginning fabrics.
 This is the quilt in its entirety, measures 67'' x 67''. I enjoyed working the quilt, it was one day of cutting it & 2 days to sew it together, quick & easy. It reminds me of Laurel Burch, the whimsy pattern & bright colours accented with the black.

 The center panel, looks like cheerleading cats to me.

More cat accents...this quilt is going to fit right in...

My thread box fromWinter Wheat in Sparta ON. The artist there is named Lucy Ogletree & she too has a love for adding cats to her artwork.

 Funny mirror, I use to have it by Boris, the dog's eating area.
 Lovely photo of a cat in a hat box by Bombay. Orange cats are one of my memories of a cat we had for years named Egnaro - orange spelt backwards lol, nick named Egg's. He was so tolerant in the days of all four kids at home, we've photos of him wearing baby bonnets. I still smile thinking about Egg's.
And my most favourite picture is, the Library Cat by Bombay. I admire it every time I go down the stairs.
Tommy the Cat is also on part of the cat collection! in his 14th year he is a handsome part of the living cat collection. Soon to be with his brother Jerry in Ontario. What a long car ride for all of us, I hope he sleeps in his crate & doesn't cry & howl for hours.


The fall decorations are inside the house - while the flower box still has flowers in it with blooms. The New Brunswick flag dances over the flowers in the wind. I look of that flag just does something to me, I smile & just love it.  When here at the cottage, I display it with pride even though I was born in Ontario.


  1. I love your cat quilt and see how important cats are in your life.
    Great cat decor.
    Have a great week.

  2. Hi again Cynthia. I just had to come by again and say thanks for such a nice comment on my blog.
    Yes, the Marilyn Monroe Birthday cake was quite a hoot. It got the audience laughing for sure. They thought that my falling was part of the act. hahaha.

    Enjoy this nice sunny morning.
    Hugs, JB
