Garden Party Blog Hop – Music Notes Quilt Pattern

About ten years back, I started taking violin lessons as a break from my daily work as a software engineer.  Then I started taking piano lessons, and recently I started toying around now and then with a guitar.

Needless to say, I love music.  A party has to have music, so I made my paper piecing pattern a set of music notes.  This is my very first paper piecing quilt pattern.  I am so happy to be able to share this with you as part of the Garden Party Blog Hop hosted by Jennifer Ofenstein at  Hope you like it.

Fall Leaves Blanket

Here is the finished blanket.  I used blanket stitch with black thread to join the two layers.  I also added a couple of photos with Charlie wallowing on it.

Better yet, just found this one of him checking it out:

I had to bribe him with it to get my laundry out:

And finally blissfully wallowing on it –

Taffy’s Personal Blankets

Taffy usually cuddles with me majority of the day, but sometimes he loves to snuggle at his favorite spots on a blanket.  The other kitties are not nearly as fond of specific spots or blankets like he is.  So I made him two personal blankets.  One with his first name, Tuffleberry and the other with his last name, Treestone.

He sleeps on my pillow at night, but sometimes he needs to stretch out a bit more considering his huge size.
