More on Notebook Cover Exchange

Marny here...look what I received from Annette in the Des Moines Modern Quilt Group Notebook Cover exchange! She used her favorite block from our book Quilts du Jour. This notebook will be well used and much loved by me! Great blue-green ombré on white, beautiful button and a closure that actually works. It is all perfect. Thank you Annette!!

Emily V. received the one I made. 
She requested a composition book cover. I used the Stiched in Color tutorial. Emily loves cats and has a fabulous sense of humor. How about kitties fishing for dinner in a goldfish bowl. I had fabric with little goldfish, but how to do the rest? Paper piecing was one answer. I found a cute solution on Carol Doak's site under the heading of free patterns. It is called Cat in the Pumpkin. Surely it could translate to Cat in the Fishbowl.
Fishbowl here we come...      
Goldfish fussy cut!
Cat in the Fishbowl!
  A pseudo Cat's Paw block might work too. 
The quadrants are 3" square with 1/4" sashing.

A little extra fabric bundled up for fun!
We are going to be part of this very special event in Ames.
We have a commissioned work that will be hung just in time!
More in the weeks to come.

    1. Thank you! Doing something humorous was fun (especially once I figured out how to paper piece again).
