Center Blocks of Henrietta Whiskers.

I have been trying to catch up on some of my BOM's. I am thinking I might want to limit how many I do next year. LOL Anyway, I finished the last of the blocks for Henrietta whiskers yesterday and sewed the blocks together last night just before Biggest Loser came on. I really like the way it is turning out. Today I hope to get the borders on and the applique in the borders done. Then it will be ready to join the ever growing pile of flimsies. I definitely have plenty to quilt on this winter. (grin)

I have already shared blocks 1-7 with you, but here is block #8.
Block #9....It felt good to get this one done yesterday.
Kevin held it up for me out on the deck this morning. What do you think?
Now I need to choose border fabrics. I really want to get this one to flimsy stage.

I hope to show you the past 2 or 3 blocks of Birdie Stitches in a day or two. Still haven't gotten the 36 patch put together, but I do have all of the blocks done. Not much else going on around here. I think that is why I love fall so much. It cools down. We have gorgeous colors on the trees. Life slows down, so that I can work on my quilting without any guilt. LOL  Friday is town day, so I need to work on a grocery list. We have kind of let healthy eating slide. Time to get back on the wagon. I need to get Kevin's lunch around, so I will post this. Thank you for visiting. Please come again. Have a good one.

WINONA!!!!! Your Henrietta Whiskers is gorgeous! I so wish I would have done it too. A friend from the quilt shop is doing it and I was able to see some of her blocks in progress. What will the borders look like? One or two? It really is beautiful!!!

How wonderful! I collected all the block instructions, but I haven't done anything with them yet -- someday, perhaps! I fell in love with Henrietta the first time I saw her. You did a great job!! :)

It is really cute! I am pretty dumb though, could you tell me what a flimsey is? Is it a quilt top? That's what I think, but I want to be sure. Karmen

Oh my goodness~ the blocks are so cute by themselves, Winona~ but when you put them together like in the last picture it looks WONDERFUL! I love it!
I love Fall too because life just has a way of slowing down a little... that and it's time for a big ol' pot of chili... *grin*
