This is a quilt that I’ve been “working on” since June… Lol
After finishing my first hand quilted kitty quilt, I decided to make quilts for my family too. So this one is for my little sister, it’s a Boxed Squares quilt using a pastel jelly roll from Joan’s.

I decided to make this quilt bigger, instead of making 10 rows of 8 squares , I’m making it 10 rows of 10 squares.
I hand sewed the first 50 squares, then got my babylock sewing machine and machine sewed the rest! πŸ™‚ it’s still a work in progress!
Here’s a collection of pictures that I’ve taken throughout the building of these blocks! πŸ™‚ enjoy!

  1. I LOVE the quilt, the colors are awesome, and like the other poster said, you make it look easy!! and i like the face your orange kitty is making, he looks kinda between shocked and yawn, love it πŸ˜€

    • Thank you πŸ™‚ my sister loves pastels, so when I saw this Jelly roll I knew I had to make something for my little sis! πŸ™‚
      And awee, thanks!
      And yes. Timmy is quite the character πŸ˜› he’s grumpy one minute and lovey dovey the next!
      All of my furr-babies always surprise me with their facial expressions! Do you have any furr-babies?

  2. Cute quilt! And be careful with those raccoons. They can carry rabies. Keep your cats away from them. Went to the beach a few weeks ago. It’s a large park facing the bay. Around 5 p.m. the raccoons came out in force. One came up to me about two inches away. I got the heck out of there!

    • Thank you! πŸ™‚ and most definitely! Two of my three babies are strictly indoors, and funny enough, Timmy who is almost always outside will sometimes walk along the fence or my neighbors roof with the raccoons, like friends! Lol
      But yeah, some raccoons are too wild!
