One more for RSC 2014 and a few blues!

Recently Linda aka Razzle Dazzle Quilter a fellow blogger and superb quilter here in New Zealand emailed me a photo of her new feline friend!

What a beauty he is, I loved  his amazing colour - which is classed as Lavender Mink - and said what a good idea it would be to make a cat for my quilt in that shade.
This is the nearest I could find

so he will be in good company in my cat quilt! Note he will not have one ear larger than the other  both will be equal in size when he is stitched up with the others!

 I think I mentioned  that I found quite a few blue fabrics hidden away in a project (16 patch) started a few years ago,  so to meet the blue theme for the month
I have four more blocks made this morning.

It's a very humid day with us, not conducive to sewing and I'm really hoping this gets less towards evening, terrible trying to sleep when you feel as if you're breathing in water! No doubt we'll have to watch for things like downy mildew etc. on the veggies and roses.

Better get a move on and go link with

Angela and friends at RSC 2014

Have a Happy Thanksgiving

Your moody blue quilt is coming along nicely. Linda's lavender cat is a pretty one!

Oh your newest kitty is so evocative of T.S. Eliot's ".. the fog comes on little cat feet.." to me. And your moody blues is so nice. You have such a natural color sense; I am really feeling that mine has gone away lately...nothing seems to please me that I am working on!
As for weather--we, here in USA, are all primed for our big Thanksgiving Holiday and are going to get a huge snow event. Perhaps the wind will blow some of your color ability my way...hugs, Julierose

Ha, so you made a cat for Bailey! Thank you! He's such a great cat, getting more active and fun by the day. Yesterday we were out all day when we came home we found he had got the peg apron down and had been dragging it through the house.Leaving a trail of pegs. Funny Cat!
Your blue patchwork look super. I always love blue.

Interesting that you would be attracted to "lavender mist" on a humid day! I am looking forward to watching you herd your cats into a quilt top.

Just discovering your blog, and I love your cats! Great fabrics too.
