I'm not sure why this block is called Cat's Cradle. Perhaps it's after the yarn game we played as children. I could make a teacup and cat's whiskers.
Let's just take a moment here to absorb the concept that I have started and finished a quilt . . .
In. The. Same. Year.
Marjorie, bring the smelling salts!
I know, I know. I should have warned you. Prepared you for the shock of it all.
The quilt measures 48 x 60 inches so not big, just a lap quilt. It is a Quilt-As-You-Go construction.
I really enjoyed making this quilt; quilting this quilt; stitching the backing seams by hand and sewing down the scrappy binding.
I don't seem to have made a noticeable dent in the stash though.
