Today we are stopping over to see Barbara from CatPatches
I came across Barbara’s blog last December when she was holding “occupy your sewing room” Once I started looking around her site I was hooked. From her stunning work to stories about her superhero felines I always feel at home on her site! I took part in her NewFO challenge in 2012 and Hope to remember to take part more in 2013!
Barbara is from Hillsboro, Oregon where she lives in the remote countryside with her husband and two cats and is a retired social worker. Barbara started quilting in July 2008, but it was a craft that caught her eye since childhood due to her grandmother’s extraordinary quilting skills. Her favourite quilt to-date is:
Mr. Bear comes Come
But if you want a clue to her secret maybe her favourite should be this one

To find out what quilting secret  Barbara  is sharing with us Please check out her site
