I’ve had a lovely time this week stitching Block 2 of the Catalicious Quilt from Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly who is generously offering up a design a month for the stitching pleasure of us all in blogland.

This block was stitched with wonderfully named “Raspberry Parfait” thread from The Gentle Arts Sampler Threads. (It’s hard to know if the colour or the name holds more attraction with some of these threads!)

I like stitching in one colour, and with these threads being variegated I still get a bit of interest with the colour . . .

I really like the way this block has turned out. It’s certainly got a bit more oompha than the first block (colour-wise), but I’m happy with both really. The first block hasn’t photograped all that well – it does look much brighter in real life . . .

I’m still keeping with my endeavor to use supplies that I have on hand and am looking forward to using some of the lovely reproduction fabrics that I have in my stash with this bed runner – I’m planning to make a runner for the end of the bed (where the cat in our lives seems to spend a good portion of her days). She’s a bit of a quilting companion, so this will be in honour of her!

It seems like such a long wait until block 3 next month . . . I guess I’ll just have to find something else to go on with – something from the long list of unfinished projects!
