What was your inspiration? I don't know the name of this pattern so I'm naming it after our cat and calling it "No I Haven't Forgotten to Feed You, Dinner is Not for Another Hour, I Know This Because I've Been Feeding You at the Same Time Every Day of Your Crazy Cat Life" - or just "Feed Me" for short.

Cor blimey, you're keen on curves! Love this one too, well done you! LOL all of the above sounds very familiar... ours is "no, it's not 6 o'clock yet" ;-)

Just curious, did you use a bought template or did you make your own?

09/04/2012 Flag

Thanks for that infor Odd Cat, I'm worried if I make my own template it wont be perfect, or solid enough to use with the rotary cutter. Not just the cost difference for us down under (which is bad enough) but it's also hard to find templates other than the standard rulers! Frustrating to say the least, so I either have to buy from Australia or US, add on postage and the cost sky rockets! I think you've just convinced me to give it a go, thanks! LOL we have daylight saving probs here too... and as far as Sassy dog is concerned, it's never too early for dinner LOL.

Lol - I know. Every day for 10 years Odd has reminded me to feed her as least an hour before her dinner. What really throws things off is Daylight Savings :P. I have a big piece of template plastic I got from the fabric store a few months ago and it has made me 7 different templates. I use a glue stick on the materials paper templates printout and then stick it to the plastic template sheet. Then I use my roatary cutter and ruler to cut out the template from the plastic. I really like making my own, mainly becasue it saves me BIG money. I have found quilting supplies here in Canada are very expensive, espeically when I look at alot of the American stores on line and across the boarder - as much as 50% cheaper down there :( As aways Pam NZ thank you so much for your wonderful compliments :)

Oh my lord Pam NZ you are preaching to the chior! I am absolutly frustrated in finding quilting supplies for reasonable prices! Sometimes what I do when I'm making templates is that I will tape the template plastic down on my cutting board and then use a bit of tape underneath my ruler so it does not move when I'm cutting. You have to press really hard with the blade and it can be a bit much having to worry about the ruler moving as well :) Good luck!

Thanks Odd Cat, great hints about the slipperyness... I have arthritis so have to be extra careful as I don't have strength in my hands, am busy searching out grippy stuff... naturally none of which are to be found over here! Will check out template plastic tomorrow. Thanks heaps! Pam

Okay, I might need to copy this idea. Okay????

09/04/2012 Flag

Yes! Yes! Please do! It is absolutly not original to me - I saw a couple of examples of it on Google image search but I could not find a name for the pattern, so I just made up a goofy one in the mean time :)

Girl, I hear your drummer, and he IS different! I love it!

I think what I like about this block the most is that you are showing what I have been trying to teach in my class...you can take the basic components and make several amazing things!
