OMG August ’16 GOAL

After working on it for seven months, I finished the quilt top for my Terra Australis quilt this past weekend. I dropped it off at ThreadBear a couple days ago for Michael to do his exceptional longarm quilting. I had some 4 1/2″ square-in-a-square mini blocks that I decided not to use for a border, but now I plan to use those mini blocks in a 36″ square mini quilt for my cats. I’m hoping they will think it is so special and nifty that they will deposit most of their cat hair on the mini quilt rather than the larger quilt. One can hope–right?

Below is a mock-up of what it will look like. If you want more details, click on my Terra Australis link above.


My August OMG goal is to get this mini quilt completed, and I plan to quilt it myself in my minimalist way.

Linking up to Red Letter Quilts: OMG It’s August.

EDITED: I decided to change my OMG August ’16 goal. Please see my Changing My August ’16 OMG GOAL (if possible) post.

    Great goal…I love your description of your quilting as minimalist. I have a big soft acrylic blanket that I fold up into a big nest that I have trained my cat to snooze on (at least in the winter). I encouraged him to sleep on it by patting it and then patting him a lot when he goes on it. I hope your cat mini works just as well.
