Cats Creating Mayhem for Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014

Actually I think I'm the one that's creating mayhem, I was doing so well tidying things up in my little studio and then went off at a tangent with something
else - looking at the quilting books available with Amazon
for reading on my iPad - fatal!!!!

Cats - I just pulled them out of their drawer and began
playing with a few on my moveable design wall which of course isn't big enough
so I need to use my larger one which is fixed to the wall.
So, then had to move a stackable set of drawers to another
space in my studio but there isn't one!
It is in a temporary home at the moment so I am just posting
a photo of a few cats on the too small wall.

Ignore colour placement, and the fact that they are not in a straight line on the
wall, they look as if they're sliding off on the right, I was in hurry to get moving things around.
This is just to give you an idea of placing right and left facing
They will be set 14 across by 9 down in straight rows!

I think we're all busy arranging blocks ready for a grand reveal so I don't feel too bad about not having stitched anything together yet.

Heading off to link up with everyone at Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014

Ignoring the tilting and the rest, the blocks look great. Have fun putting them together.

That is going to be a lot of cats! It will be fun to play with their placement.

More naughty cats! I thought is was only my cat the created mayhem! They are looking good.

Have you heard the expression: "difficult as trying to herd cats"? Now you know it's true!

They look super.

This is going to be a fantastic quilt! Have you considered adding a very thin strip of black between rows to give the ears a bit of breathing room? This would also avoid the join of seams where the two top cats bottoms meet the tip of the ear of the cat below.

The herd of colorful cats are coming along quite nicely! Mayhem suits them :0)

I like the mayhem (Jo's word). I really like quilts set solid - without sashing. You get a sense of the pattern, and sometimes a secondary pattern emerges.
Love your cats - no litter necessary. (In reality, I'm more of a dog person.)

Your cats are gorgeous, whether they behave or not!
