Purr-Fect Patchwork Tour

Hi Stitchers!

I am so excited to share a *new* book with you! I feel like this has been a long time coming….because it has! My friend, Pamela has had some twists and turns to get this book published. I think it’s been worth the wait. It’s beautiful and full of amazingly Purr-fect projects & photos for all of us crazy cat lovers!

you can purchase the book HERE. 

I met Pam several years ago when she designed a quilt for Moda Bake Shop and I joined the QAL. We connected and met in person to share ideas and skills. Ever since we have worked on a few projects together. I helped her piece a few of the projects in this book and Rob (my husband) even quilted the cover quilt. :) I quilted a few projects. :)

It’s amazing how quilting connects you with people all over the world and creates friends.

I didn’t realize until writing this post that Pamela also thanked me in her dedication of the book. My heart *swells* ….So sweet! ( in my defense I don’t have my copy yet…I just have a digital copy and I am terrible about reading digital books…I am so old school.)

Pam has not only designed all of the projects in this book but she also did all of the photography.

There are may projects for all skill levels and it’s also full of funny cat puns…which will bring a smile.

I am sharing the Feline Floral Quilt. Pamela came over and we pieced this quilt together and then she left it for me to quilt. I was nervous. I knew it was one of her favorites and I was unsure if I should take some risk…..but I decided to go with my gut and quilt my idea. It just worked out so purrfectly. I wanted to quilt those big flowers. It worked out so that I could fill 4 blocks with 1 flower and have 4 flowers all the way across. I just couldn’t resist that.

I pebbled in the white background behind the cat and had to add a flower…I mean it is all about a “Feline Floral” quilt. I quilted straight lines in the cat to create a different texture so it would stand out.

I am super excited to see my friend’s dream come to fruition. She’s in print. All of her hard work has finally been released into the world.

It’s exciting to be a part of it all. I hope you all feel inspired.

 

I am giving away a Digital Copy of Purr-Fect Patchwork! (International quilters eligible!)

    Such lovely and thoughtful quilting! I was thinking along the lines of “internet” famous cats. Lil Bub is the first cat I really followed on Facebook.
