The pussy cat quilt was getting binding done, something I really enjoy. But first, it had to be applied. I always like to have the binding strip prepared ahead of time.
Then, an hour or so at a time, I sat comfortably in my recliner chair and hand stitched the the binding down. I find this part very soothing, but I know some quilters don’t enjoy doing the binding at all. And I do find those binding clips much easier to use than pins, no more stabbed fingers.
Who doesn’t enjoy hand stitching the binding down?
There – all finished. Time for a photo shoot.
This started life as a small panel, goodness knows where I got it from. Perhaps I purchased it, or maybe it was a gift. I separated all the little cats, added sashing and stitched it back together as a leader and ender project. I can certainly remember where I got the border fabric from. Some years ago a co-worker was looking to get rid of some of her fabric, and knowing I was a quilter, brought a selection in for me to check out. This blue floral was one of the fabrics I purchased. The backing is a piece of sheeting.
The pussy cat cot quilt will be donated to Foster Hope, who look after children going into foster care. I hope a little girl will love her pretty blue quilt and enjoy checking out all the different cats.
