KatiBobSquarePants

Kati from the blue chair has, for some time, been one of my favourite current quilters. She has great vision, moves freely between modern and traditional designs, always putting her own stamp on whatever she makes and always with perfect taste and style. Sheesh, I'd never be a copywriter, I'm rubbish at writing this stuff but I am a HUGE fan of her work and nearly feel tearful looking at this. Is that weird?

Stash Quilt Side A by from the blue chair

I'm five blocks into LynneBobSquarePants and Kati has only gone and made 16 blocks and look how toe curlingly fabulous this looks.  Look at that one green block. I never think of stuff like that. And look how there are no extra sashings or borders - just the blocks then the binding. I know I'm going on and on so I will shut up now. But I love it. A lot. lot.

  4. I fell in love with this quilt. When I first saw her 1st block, I didn't realize you'd created it. I took hers as inspiration and made one out of the HST's I'd received in a friendship swap. http://moneik.blogspot.com/2011/05/weekend-sewing.html I'm working on 4 more blocks from the same HST's. I've already started cutting out another quilt using some pink/brown scraps in a bigger size using the same block. I just love this block.
