This afternoon, I decided I need something Autumn-ish for the front entrance. My Tisket a Tasket quilt is hanging on the wall there right now, but I really want more Fall colours.
I chose this little project from a 2004 issue of Quiltmaker magazine. Instead of the blue cat on a black background, though, I'm doing a black cat on a purple background. But... a problem arose. I had no purple in my stash, other than a couple of scraps. So I sent a text to the OnlyChild who was out with Mr. P and, I knew, very close to my favourite LQS. Please pick me up a fat quarter of purple, I said. Not too bright, no crazy prints, tone-on-tone would be great.
And they did... in fact, they bought me five fat quarters. Lovely. Now I have purple in my stash. I chose the one on the right as my background fabric.
