My Best Friend Misha

This month for the Modern Quilt-A-Long we are creating the block called Best Friends from the Modern Blocks Book. This block is special to me. I found a fabric with cats on it and they looked kind of like they were in the sky. Well, my most wonderful cat Misha who had been with me for 16 years before she passed simply needed an homage. Sniff, sniff. If you’ve been there I’m sure you understand.


We are six months into our Quilt-a-Long here is what I’ve created thus farP1010281this was a hard shot to get, it was windy outside and they kept flying away 🙂 If you are interested in learning the stories behind each block you can click here.

If you’d like to see how the others in the quilt-a-long have been interpreting the monthly challenge you can click here we are all putting up our progress this month.

Speaking of best friends I got a surprise in the mail the other day

P1010272My sister and one of our best friends (she is older than me and has actually known me since I was in Kindergarten!) sent two scrappy sprouts blocks for my bee block quilt. It choked me up, what a sweet thing to do. They just came out of the blue. Happy me. I have close to 40 blocks now…about 15 more and I can start putting it together!
