The Cat Wears a Different Hat!!

That Cat in the Hat fabric quilt I had on my design wall last week just wasn't working for me. I love Sandy Klop's "Triple Crown Quilt" pattern but just didn't like how it was turning out with this fabric. So I tore it all down and tried something different--and LOVE IT! Most of the left side is sewn and the right side will be added today sometime.

Unfortunately, I need to make 5 more triangles out of the light fabric--the one with all the words on it--and have run out of fabric! It means I won't be able to finish it right away--ARGH! I only need a 2 1/2" WOF piece!! I called every quilt shop within a 50 mile radius and no one has it! (I bought this online). Guess I'll have to order a whole half yard and wait for it to come in the mail. . .

I feel your pain!! The same thing happened to me due to a slight cutting error and I had to wait an entire week for the fabric to come in the mail. Really puts a glitch in the momentum!! (GO GIANTS) Great game today.

Don't you hate when that happens? At least it is still available :)

Oh I hate that!! Still you have a plan that you like and can get back after it when you get your fabric- oh btw - super cute fabric it is!

Oh my, that is such a cute quilt! I love that fabric, and have been eyeing it on the equilter website. I might just have to give in and but some.

Love your quilt and the way the constant fabrics ties all the hexs together.

Keepsake quilting has this fabric. Try them out.

I agree, perfect in hexagon blocks.

Running out in the middle of a project should make you happy that you jumped right in when the fabric was new and readily available. It always happens to me when I've used an old fabric out of the sale bin and can't get any more. It is a great quilt though, and well worth the wait for more fabric.

This is awesome! I LOVE it! I have some of this fabric and don't know what to do with it.
