Nothing is quite as satisfying as a cat approved quilt. Here, Petey gives us his stamp of approval for the picnic quilt in Jenean’s Beechwood Park.
You may recall the dress done in the purple colorway which I posted here. The red/white/blue colorway is just as amazing and perfect for a summer picnic quilt. It feels a bit patriotic but without any specificity. Americans, Aussie, Brits, Kiwis….the list is lengthy. (Check wikipedia for a list of all countries with red, white and blue in their flags.)
The free pattern will be available for download through Free Spirit at some point in the near future, but definitely after Spring Quilt Market next month. It’s easy to put this dramatic piece together. The drama comes from letting the fabric do the heavy lifting. A little fussy cutting gives it structure without having to put a lot of effort into piecing. For example, see the corner square in the dark blue to the right of Petey’s front paw in the above photo? The directionality of the fussy cut piece makes up for a pieced square.
It’s a full weekend of sewing assignments for me. Threads litter the floor and coffee is in constant supply.
What’s up for your weekend?
