It’s Grumpy Cat! I think he’s upset the background is purple. hehe
The second I saw the pattern on Instagram, I bought it. You can find the ‘Grouchy Cat’ paper piecing pattern here or here. Sew What Sherlock is a mad genius with this!
My cat has a teensy little mistake by his eye, but we’ll just ignore that. This is the 18″ version and I added a 2″ border so I could make a pillow cover.
I’ve never paper pieced with such large pieces before, so it was a little interesting getting the angles for the fabric right.
This morning I turned my Scrap Medley blocks into a pillow cover. You can purchase the pattern from my Craftsy store for a buck.
I’m determined to make 2014 a year of finishes for all of my WIP.
………. and I just got sidetracked for an hour looking at Grumpy Cat meme’s.
I don’t have a cat but I do have three dogs. One of them really wanted in the pillow pics.
If you make a Grumpy Cat I must see it!

I came up with an idea today and hoping you’ll join me!
Block Rockin Beats by the Chemical Brothers came on when I was driving home and a light bulb went off. I thought blocks named after bands or songs would make an interesting series.
I just started paper piecing recently but I think I’ve grasped it pretty well. I love playing around in Illustrator and it’s so much fun to come up with ideas for paper piecing. I’ve already came up with a couple and figured they would play well into this series.
No promises but I pledge to:
- Release a new block at least every *other* week – will do my best to every week
- Test the dimensions and make every block before posting
- Each block will be 12.5″ (12″ finished)
- Provide easy printable PDF files
- Have 12 weeks of Block Rock’n
BEGINS FRIDAY, MARCH 29th 2013
Here is a look at the first two I’ll release.
