Cat and Flower
While in Virginia, teaching at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, I discovered that cats are not nearly as popular as dogs.
This scientific survey was made while teaching my new class, Bad Dog! Cute Cats! Over 75% of the students requested dog patterns. The remainder used the cat patterns I provided.
Thus proving that a dog owner's life is much more enthralling than that of a cat owner's.

Hi Laura, hope you got home ok. We're snowed in here in Richmond today, you would probably laugh at us, that 4-8" of snow would shut the city down.

I didn't have enough fabric left from my kit to make binding strips (broke the cardinal rule of cutting largest pieces first) but I remedied that at the quilt shop yesterday. I have some other ideas for embellishing my "Bad Dog" and will send you a picture when I'm done.

Looking forward to your visit to Payson in November! Just took a class yesterday at a local quilt shop here in Tucson -- a demo and overview of various fusibles. Found myself itching to get past the traditional applique-related fusing info and on to the CSOF-related approach. Sadly, she spent less than 5 minutes on it, so my next move is to get your C&T DVD!

I guess I'm in the minority...I think cats are the best! Sadly I don't HAVE one anymore, DH is highly allergic...

Love your pattern though! I'm sure it was a fun class.

LOL! Oh that darn crazy cat lady has ruined it for all the cats in the world! Surely your fab patterns will help bring back their popularity. Although I did hear that as the only animal that hunts purely for sport ~ they are considered THE MOST vicious animal on the planet! Who'd a thunk it!
Cheers,
Dionne
PS - Love the eye candy on your blog!

I learned SO much in the class! It wasn't just "how to fuse" but to work on my color sense. I have so many years of traditional coloring that it was a challenge to think of purple cats. I made some new connections between the "little gray cells" and that's so very important.!
