Another block done and cats

Dear Jane – “Insanity Revisited”, quilting links, quilts

F-3 SnowballI got another of my Dear Jane – “Insanity Revisited” blocks done today – a very easy one it took under an hour to hand piece it.  It is called Snowball.  I tell you as others will agree I’m sure – some of these little blocks are so easy! and then you get a tough one that takes almost 4 hours to make.  I could have made another block today but I spent some time quilting at the big frame today, the quilt is coming along slowly but I will still be able to finish it by my February 22nd deadline.

On the subject of cats.  I have 3 cat coffee mugs.  They are a little unusual.  I will start with the oldest first – this was one of the first two of the mugs that started my collection.  This one was picked out by my oldest daughter at a craft fair god knows how long ago – I’m guessing – 20 years? 25?  It is a one of a kind – I have never seen cat muganything like it again.  Looks like that cat is getting ready to drink whatever gets in this mug.  I have actually never used it for athe catnything – the cat very much gets in my way!  but it has always been sitting out where I can see it.  I will show the other 2 cat mugs tomorrow.

I have been told that some like all of my quilt questions no matter if they know the answers or not so I will continue to post them for awhile.  This last test that I found has really tested me!

Yesterday’s question was:  The 1000 Pyramids quilt is assembled with equilateral triangles – true or false?  The answer is  True click on the link and it will lead you to instructions on how to make it and you can print out a template.

(I guess I should point out that I have no connection to the links I provide.  They are just found from searches on the net – I do not mean to advertise one page over another – I just pick one that picks my fancy.)

A new question – I don’t have these numbered – I’m taking them out of order:

When you applique, concave curves, lines that curve inwards, are easier to turn under when you make perpendicular clips along the curved seam allowance — TRUE or FALSE

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    I’m guessing True, but I don’t applique much. Yes, please keep the questions coming!
