Productivity was the name of the game on Saturday. I practiced free motion quilting on the lovely little Beauty Queen quilt. This time I worked a meandering pattern across the quilt, trying not to cross any previously stitched lines. I need a lot more practice before I’ll be happy with the results, but in the meantime, I intend to ignore the problem areas and pretend they don’t exist. Which is a lot easier when a certain black cat helps hide them.After much deliberation, I chose Jennifer’s zebra print for the cornerstone squares. They’re just the right amount of unexpected drama. Of course, any black and white print would do the job. I’m just a sucker for that zebra print.The block I used is very easy. In no time, you can have a stack of them ready to sew into a quilt top. The block measures 12 1/2″ unfinished. I used 2 1/2″ sashing with the zebra squares and a 2 1/2″ border.

Nothing glamorous, but all of it, Sis Boom finery.What do you think? Worth keeping? Stinka has made her choice clear. And as we all know, a cat’s vote is worth more than the accolades of mere humans.
