Welcome quilters and cat lovers all, to my stop on the Purr-fect Patchwork blog tour! My amazing quilting friend Pamela Jane Morgan, or @pammiejane for my Instagram peeps, has written a paws-itively purr-fect book that celebrates all things cats and quilts and creativity, not to mention some great puns, which we all know I am a huge fan of!
The project I have chosen to feature also happens to be the cover quilt for the book. Say meow to Laser Cats!!!
PEW! PEW! PEW!
Named for the infamous sketch on a very popular late night live television show, this quilt is a super fun and easy make. Need to whip something up for a baby shower or birthday? Laser Cats is your quilt!
My quilt is going to be finished and grace the bed of my tiniest human. He had a lot of fun picking the fabrics, and settles on a pair of charm packs I had laying around. My biggest challenge making the quilt was finding enough navy blue prints for the background. apparently I need to go fabric shopping (oh no!). I LOVE how the quilt turned out. I was a little worried that the blues wouldn’t show up against the navy, but kiddo was adamant that they all be used, and it worked out.
My helper cat supervised while I was cutting and sewing. She approves this book whole-heartedly.
She also put her seal of approval on the binding…..thanks Eevee…..
And on the finished quilt. I don’t know how she does it, but she managed to find the folded quilt top and sleep on it in the 5 seconds I put it down before pictures…*sigh*
See that little face? She knows exactly what she’s doing! As quilters, we know if the cat approves then the quilt is a good one.
I need to be honest, it was really, really hard to pick just one project from the book. Pam has done an amazing job curating a variety of sewing projects to appeal to every sewist. From bags to pillows to quilts, you are sure to find your next favorite project. I already have a list going of what I am going to make, and for who. Christmas gift giving is mostly taken care of at this point, and all from Pam’s book!
so, in order to celebrate and share teh amazing projects with you, I am giving away an ECopy of Purr-Fect Patchwork!
The giveaway is open to every one!
