My friend, Lynda has a very special employee named Edye. Two summers ago before I moved back to Ohio I came home for the summer. I spent one week at Lynda's shop and made this quilt on one of the spare commercial machines. Edye was just fascinated as the quilt went together. I got this pattern from the Reap What You Sew group in Phoenix. It is made from scrappy strips of fabric sewn together (I already had this step done before I came to Ohio.), which are then cut into triangles. The white fabric is bleached muslin, but you can use anything. I just happened to have a lot of muslin on hand. I used a paw print for the border and backing because Edye loves animals and has a couple cats. The corner blocks are black and has the word meow in various colors. The quilt is machine quilted stitch in the ditch. Eyde was in awe by the time the quilt was completed. Lynda embroidered a label for me on one of her commercial embroidery machines after Edye went home. The next day at lunch time I presented the quilt to Edye. It was my way of saying thank you for running Lynda's shop while she came out to Arizona for 2 weeks after I got out of rehab to take care of me. Edye was so overwhelmed that she just cried, because she had no idea that the quilt was for her. By the way, she loves the quilt.
Notice: You end up with pinwheel and square in a square blocks.
