Living it up in the ATL

Oooo I'm so excited, I'm doing a happy dance. I have all weekend off from Sbux so I am going to really live it up and sew all weekend. I also plan on leisurely reading the NY Times on Sunday and hang out with the cats. Ha ha--do I know how to party or what? Tomorrow is my sewing group so I get to find out how all my teacher friends are doing on their first week back to school (y'all have been quiet in blogland!!!), and find out how many more quilts Karin finished this week.

When I got home from work, I finished sewing the rows together on my "Firecracker" quilt and gathered stuff up for tomorrow. Here's the quilt without borders (I have to wait for the yardage to appear at Sweet Home Quilt Co).

The quilt is really not a trapezoid--it's twin size so hard to photograph well. And that's not a cat applique--that's Gomez (Mega-bux). I think he is making sure the points match...
Stella couldn't be left out. She is so cute you just can't stand it!
I love how this quilt is coming along. It's 2 charm packs (Moda's Civil War Crossing), a new Little Quilts shirting for the background, and 2 accent fabrics. S. noticed that it was 1800s repro fabric in a contemporary setting (scary--he's been around quilting too long!) Next up is another jelly roll quilt. I'll post progress later this weekend.
Edgar Poe says "a half-yard of fabric covered with cat hair coming right up". Gee thanks Edgar!

That is a really cool quilt! I am totally in agreement with the cats on this!

Great Quilt! Love the quilt cat...a quilt isn't done until it has some dog or cat hair on it.

I really like it! What is it about quilt stuff on the floor that beckons to the felines?
