Making Fabric

Hi all, good to be back after a little break for real life, :).  I have been making green fabric this week as the background for my Cow Quilt, which is my first "story quilt."  I sort my scraps by color, (ok sometimes I sort them, usually I stuff them in the drawer and son Cort sorts them for me) so I pulled out the green bag and just start sewing them together.  I also add from stashed fabric and bought a few new greens too just for fun!  Here we go!

I can tell you story quilts are FUN, endless possibilities.

Also visited my 18 year old son Niles last weekend at the USAFA where he is a freshman...  needless to say, I am one proud mama.

Cort, Niles, Kat

Here's to Friday nights and the upcoming weekend!


  1. Love the greens, always a happy color!

  2. I love your made green fabric! So much fun. My "Out of the Box" book came today! Squeeeee. I've never made a story quilt either. I will begin my cow when I get back from my weekend away.
    Tell Niles I am proud of him, too. God Bless our Troops!!!
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Hugs, Deborah

  3. Lovely fun and you truly do have a right to be proud! Your children are beautiful and how lovely to have a little helper to sort colors with...great for both of you!!
