Wakey, Wakey!

Wakey, Wakey, Little Birdy!

It's the first of April... and that means a new edition of "Paper Piecing 1/4"  " is here!
It is titled:  Springtime Garden Patterns

Latest Issue:   Issue #13 April  -  June 2017
{avail HERE}

The super talented artist and designer, Janeen, at Quilt Art Designs, creates these amazing and fun foundation paper pieced patterns quarterly. 

The pattern that Janeen asked me to "bring to life" from this edition is called,
 " Cat and Bird in Tree."  I think she knows that I love cats... and especially little ,impish, black cats!!

Pattern:     Cat and Bird in Tree       {here }  found in Paper Piecing 1/4" dig mag 
                                                       issue  #13  April-June 2017        by Quilt Art Designs
                   An 18" finished block

"Wakey, wakey, little birdy!"
It is cute looking on paper.... but is even more delightful after it is made up in fabrics !

My sister, Amy, at " Amy Made That!" blog, told me : "How would YOU like to wake up that way... nose to nose?!  "     I laughed out loud when I read that!

"Yoooo Hoooo.... Let's PLAY!! "
I think that Janeen is going to make this cute little fellow into a regular feature, called "Mr. Whiskers!"       

I decided to plan on making this block, and 3 more future Mr Whiskers blocks , into a cute wall hanging or mini quilt! 

"What's your name?  I 'm Mr Whiskers! "

This is a fast and fun block to make up.  You'll want to check out the other awesome patterns in this new edition.  {here}  I have my eye on few of those patterns, so you may see them on my blog in the near future!.     I  just can't wait for another "Mr Whiskers" block to be created in the next issue!

I'll be linking up at:    Let's Bee Social  @  Sew Fresh Fabrics      and
                                 Midweek Makers @  Quilt Fabrications      and
