Kitty Cocktail, Market Day, Batik Cascade, Joy of Computer Work, Around the Town

Quilting:
I've finished the top for Market Day, a sew-along by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts. I decided to stop after the first border. I'll bind it with the same dark green solid as in the corner & center triangles, and the back will be a dark purple solid. All of the lights except for the one with the purple leaves and all of the blacks are from Pam's American Gothic fabric line.



I also did some more quilting on Batik Cascade (Batik Go-Round) by Karen Combs.




I sewed half of a flying geese unit for Around the Town by Dawna Baker.



Cross Stitch:
I did some more stitching on Joy of Computer Work which is based on artwork by Randal Spangler and adapted to cross stitch by Michele Sayetta of Heaven and Earth Designs. I didn't do any work on the text this week.



Finally, I finished stitching Kitty Cocktail, a Mini-Kats™ design by Linda Connors of Calico Crossroads®, adapted from the artwork of Kathleen Kelly of Kats by Kelly™.

Market Day, Batik Cascade, Ocean Waves, The Dolphins' Domain, Potholder

Quilting:

Last Friday was the big reveal for Market Day, a sew-along by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts. Here's what I got sewn together this week:



I'm planning on leaving off the large border; I will, however, do the small border. I'm not a big fan of plain -- i.e. not pieced -- borders, but I do think the small border frames this quilt nicely and since it will be purple in my version that center piece won't look quite so lonely.

Next, I did some more quilting on Batik Cascade (Batik Go-Round) by Karen Combs.



 
I also nearly finished attaching the last binding strip to the potholder.
