Mystery Monday: The Christmas Quilt, Pt3

Good morning! As I said in the previous post, I had a kitty get sick and I’ve been working my tail off, trying to get ready for a parental visit. It’s been a long time since they’ve come to my house and I really wanted it to be perfect! In the middle of all that, I pulled a leg muscle which meant I couldn’t use my sewing machine and a kitty got sick, which was not pleasant at all. The kitty is not healed yet. We’re waiting for test results to find out if anything can be done for her. Basically, she just up and quit walking. They believe it is neurological and caused by brain damage (no external signs of trauma) or a virus that will take, at least, 6-8 weeks of antibiotics. At the end of that, we’ll find out of the damage done is permanent.

You all remember Sassy-Anna, right? She’s the kitty that took sick, literally overnight. Just up and quit walking, playing or doing anything but lay around and pee/poop on herself. It takes time to get her to eat anything and cleaning up after her messes does take time as well. I’ve had a lot of help but…

So, having said that, I’ll say that I did not get my blocks done. I’m going to try and get them done, however, I did a drawing while laid up with my leg hurting that will keep you moving.

To start, we’ll make three rows. The first row we make, we’ll make two of.

STRIP ONE (create TWO): Using (2) of Block 3, we’ll put those together with (1) strip of the “Inner Border” fabric cut to 12 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Click the picture to see it larger.

STRIP TWO: The next we’ll make will be the middle row. You’ll need (2) of Block 4 and (1) “Inner Border” fabric cut as 12 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Click the picture to see it larger.

Using (4) cuts of the “Inner Border” fabric cut at 28 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and (2) cuts of the “Inner Border” fabric cut at 52 1/2″ x 4 1/2″, assemble. You can click the picture to see it larger.

Assemble as follows (starting at the top and working down):

  • Inner Border Fabric 28 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
  • STRIP ONE
  • Inner Border Fabric 28 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
  • STRIP TWO
  • Inner Border Fabric 28 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
  • STRIP ONE (reversed/upside down)
  • Inner Border Fabric 28 1/2″ x 4 1/2″

When finished that, add the two side pieces of Inner Border fabric cut at 52 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.

We’ll see you Monday! If I don’t get it sewn, I will draw out a picture again as instructions. Please, ask questions if you need to!
