Most of us quilters love cats and even if you don't, you know someone who does, so how about a Kitty Condo? They are quick and easy to make and it's a perfect gift.
Emma made this condo, that's Peanut Butter enjoying his new hangout, so cute!
It has little ribbon tassels, so it's more than just a napping place.
Both sides have a screen, so it's well ventilated. Kitty can hang out it here all day!
As far as fabric goes, you just need 2-3/8 yards of the main print and a fat 1/4 of contrast fabric.
You can order the pattern here and then pick some great fabric!
I almost forgot to add another fabric suggestion!?! Smudgy is so
adorable and would be perfect for the condo in either of the colorways;
pink for the girls,
red, gray and black for all the Buckeye fans.
Shop the collection here.
Do you have an extremely loved quilt? I might venture to say that mine is the most loved ever.
It's falling apart and no, I don't want it fixed! She's perfect just the way she is~
My mom made this quilt for me when I was 8 years old in 1987. The store had been open a few years and she was learning to quilt. She finished the top and a fellow quilter took it to a church where the ladies hand quilted it and charged by the spool. It is so soft an yummy now, even with half the fabric missing from the top.
My husband, kids and even dogs have all enjoyed this quilt. Check out that binding, good thing it was double binding or it would be totally gone!
So can you beat me?? Send your pics and story to email@example.com If you can beat me, I'll post the pics and send you a healthy bundle of fat quarters!
And the winner is.....Celeste! Below is her lovely story and a pic of the quilt.
Grandma's Baby Quilt
When my grandmother Jacqueline
Ethel Ambler was born in 1930 my great great grandmother Haywood made
her a quilt. She embroidered 12 animals and stitched the quilt
together. On the quilt are embroidered my grandma Jackie's initials J E
A and crazy quilting stitches around each animal.
My great grandmother Margie used the quilt for my grandma and when
gma Jackie had my mother in 1948 she began using the quilt for her 5
children. It has been loved to pieces over the years. The binding has
been covered and replaced, but all else is original.
Before grandma passed away, she gave me this quilt and I only hope I can love it as much as she did.
Congratulations, Celeste! Thanks to everyone for the pics, have a great day!
So here it is, my husband's Ohio State quilt. He has waited patiently hoping I was going to make something, but has no clue it's coming now. I waited to find the right pattern and I'm really happy with how this turned out. The pattern is Gray Matters by Zen Chic, it's a layer cake pattern but I just adjusted accordingly. I didn't put much thought into the layout but of course, after the fact I feel like I should have. Just some inspiration for you!
I should also mention that I pieced it, my mom quilted it and grandma did the binding. They were Santa's helpers this year! Now Santa has to get cracking on a couple of rag quilts.
Yes, we did it, too! The Modern Asterisk Quilt was just too irresistible, we had to have it hanging in our shop. Here it is, fresh from the quilter!
Our quilter, who we trust with all of our quilts, chose wavy lines to finish off this trendy quilt. Here's a close up, you can see the lines are spaced kind of randomly. This is a fun one and is really stunning in person. If you live close, stop in a take a peek!
Paper piecing might seem scary, but these instructions are easy to follow and fun, too!
Main Street Market designs did a great job. The pattern, fabric or kits are available here.
Tomorrow I'm going to sneak and show my Ohio State Quilt that I made for my husband since I think the very last thing he would look at before Christmas is a fabric blog.
