I think I got it .. maybe

quiltlayoutThis is something I’ve been batting around in my mind for a few days now – well more than a few days.  I’ve been thinking about this the whole time I was working on it.  I wanted to use motifs that were mum’s passions – she loved cats and gardening  she loved to read and a million other things, but you could find her outside in the garden soon as the weather broke – her and I would be so excited when we saw the first crocus pop up through the snow – the true harbingers of spring – never mind that weasely rodent pfft .. as if I would believe an overgrown rat!  Crocus – you can believe them for sure!

So I finally decided on using cat paws, tulips and gardening tools.  I went back and forth on this a million times – did I want the pink entwined to be negative space, did I want to use coffee cups .. ugh.  These thoughts would follow me to sleep and when i woke.  I put it up on my design wall and stared at it, put it on the floor and stared at it.  I knew I wanted a looser motif for the center, matching triangle corners seems like a good idea.

Like I said, I think I’ve got it, I’m sure this will evolve as I work on it the one thing I know for sure is the center block and I really like the idea of the cat paws wandering around the center block – the gardening motif may change and so may the corner motifs.  As it is, the paw motifs might be side by side like the cat is walking – I’ll just have to see what I find.

Least the first block is a definite LOL

  1. Thank you ☺ it did change .,. The garden tools for the negative space wasn’t going to work since I don’t have a mid or a long arm .. it does look nice though

  2. You know the old saying..”it ain’t over till the fat lady sings”? well, in quilts it ain’t over till the last stitch is in! Up till that last stitch anything can (and does) happen! I like where you are going with this.
    Oh, and man will I be happy when that first crocus pops up it colorful head this year!
