Purr-fect Patchwork = omg cats and quilts

OMG have you seen this new sewing book for cat lovers?

It's called Purr-fect Patchwork by Pamela Jane Morgan, which you can buy right from her website (signed even).  It's by C&T/Stash Books, the very same company that I worked with on my Making Faces book!



Look at this Blooming Curiosity quilt from the book:

You know me, I am not usually one for patterns, but I have to at least make the center medallion part, right? Well I started! That's right, I ACTUALLY SEWED. From measurements. Following instructions! I guess I can do it when I really want to. 


Look I made my cat!

Blue Kitty is not impressed.

"AM I A JOKE TO YOU, MOMTHER?" - Blue Kitty, probably.

The background fabric looks bubblegum pink in some pics and orange in others but in reality it is salmony. Guess I went a little crazy with the saturation boost. 

This was really fun to make! 

Pieces cut out:

(also hey, that black fabric is one of my own from the Yummies line I did with Hoffman a few years ago!)

Units sewn:

And yes those wonky little half-square triangle units on the right are made from the  cutoffs because i am a scavenger and i can't throw anything away.

I'll incorporate them somehow. This will probably become a pillow that differs from the medallion in the quilt by a fair amount, because that's how I use books!  I might take bits and pieces of instruction/information and then do my own thing with it.

That's what's fun for me about buying craft/sewing books! And Purr-fect Patchwork is a great one for all the quilty/cat eye candy you could want. Like that cover quilt - so good.

Cat parts sewn together:

Next I'll make one of the flowers. Auditioning fabric is as far as I've gotten, but I enjoyed working on this!

Of course the colors I chose seemed familiar and then I realized it's because it looks similar to this giant Poppy Cats quilt I started laying out at the beginning of the pandemic. I'll have to revisit that.

What's better than cats and quilting. VERY LITTLE. Purr-fect Patchwork  is inspiring me to get back to sewing!
