A Pink Cat Named Steve, Do You Have Any Spare Change? & 15 yards of Posies
I heart Denyse Schmidt…can you tell? I love her modern design and how her quilts and books always contain a touch of whimsy. Above is a picture of a cat I made from her pattern, Three Faces of Steve. The pattern is from DS’s book Denyse Schmidt Quilts. This little guy worked up quite quickly. I cut out the pattern in the evening, and stitched it up the next morning and had it on time for the baby shower I was taking him to. He and all of his wonkiness made a big splash. He has two different eyes which only adds to his charm.
I’m finishing up my Spare Change quilt. It’s turning out to be a square quilt and for the first time, I’m making the quilting in a very visible red, rather than a color of thread that sort of disappears into the quilt. I think it’s going to be really fun and cheerful when it’s done.
Finally…a question. I received my 15 yards of the Flea Market Fancy in the pear color. Help me with a quilt idea for it. Should it just be the fabric, little or no design? Floating squares? WHAT? It’s a whole lot of green…
