"Gizzy" Quilt Blocks

Four years ago I started making and selling kitty quilts. They were 24" square, and custom designed for each cat. They sold well, and went all over the world - all over the US, to Great Britain, Germany, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The quilts were all "modular" and essentially strip pieced. I made blocks as I have described here. I made the quilts for several years, and finally stopped. But I have a lot of the precut blocks left over. The "blocks" are 6-1/2" square; 6-1/2 x 4-1/2"; and 4-1/2" x 2-1/2".

How many do I have left over?
The ruler is resting up against a stack of 6-1/2" square blocks, and it's 11" high.

Think I have enough for a couple of quilts?

Me too.

What does this have to do with cleaning the sewing studio? Stay tuned.

Not sure where you're going with this (these), but if you want to get them out of your studio, I could stitch them up into donation quilts for the Alz. Study patients in CA ...

SO many colors in those piles of pieces!

Hmmmm.... do I sense a giveaway? I'd probably enter just for the chance of winning blocks to make into kitty quilts for donation. But given the size of my own stash, that might not be a good idea. ;-)

Goodness I supposed most every CB kittie has their own quilt. We both do. What do to with the extra?

We love our quilt that we inherited from Emma and sometimes we even share it!!
