WIP - Puss in the Corner Quilt

I stayed home from work this morning to catch up on some computer time with no interruptions.  Of course, then I got distracted by sewing... Emails just aren't as much fun.

I decided to finish up some Puss in the Corner blocks I had been working on.  I was able to get a copy of Fabulously Fast Quilts, Amy Smart's new book at Quilt Market.  I really liked the blocks (and the super fast way Amy shows you how to put them together) from her Quick Puss in the Corner quilt.


These were really fast to put together.  I thought about making more blocks for a bigger quilt but that really crisp green is hard to find.  Besides, I don't make enough baby quilts.  I have some friends who stock pile baby quilts for gifts and I always think, "I should do that!" Of course, then I end up forgetting and making a lap quilt.

Puss in the Corner blocks!  So easy and look cool too!

I started my blocks with 9" squares instead of 10" since I was using fat eighths.  I think these would be really cool with some Old New 30s prints or some of the new Flower Sugar line.  I will have to contemplate a lap quilt now :)


I've been working on more Scrappy Pinwheel Blocks as leaders and enders.  I'm still shooting for 144 for a queen size quilt!  Hopefully, I will get some more sewing time this week!
