Safe Harbor 2,cat quilt, ships and baby geese.

I think I will have to start a diary on the laptop, so I will be reminded what has been going on since I last blogged.  My niece’s cat Enzo loves to curl up on my sil’s quilt, so I thought he needed one of his own.  A few disappearing 9 patch blocks later, and he seems to agree with me.


The tall ships were in Belfast at the beginning of July. GD, D2 and I spent a great day admiring them and eating lots of unhealthy/tasty snacks from the international markets. My new favourite food is sweet potato fries.2015-07-02 12.57.42

I saw a tutorial for this little box on Pintrest and thought I would give it a try.  Two friends want one. I think I will point them to the tut and say have-a-go.2015-07-01 16.21.49

My second Safe Harbor quilt top is finished and ready for the quilter. Planning to take it on Friday.

The sun came out just when I needed it, and DH had just cut the grass/moss, so it was just right for my photo shoot. This is a big quilt, so I put the flowers beside it to get some perspective.

Cats do love quilts. Here is Amber on a pile of little quilts I have received from participants of A Little Quilt Swap.  She found them on the bed, and thought she would try them for size/comfort.

Talk again soon. Barbara.


  1. Your Safe Harbor looks fantastic. Why is it that cats love quilts so much?

  2. The Safe Harbor quilt is gorgeous! Congrats on a fabulous finish.
