A Pink Cat Named Steve, Do You Have Any Spare Change? & 15 yards of Posies

steve-the-cat

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…

  1. oh how cute. :D

    wanna know what i think of when i see your pear fabric???
    i see a gorgeous pinwheel quilt.
    really.
    i mean i know it’s old and boring, but sometimes it just makesa certain fabric come to life.
    make sense???
    i can just see it vividly in my mind.
    {not that my 2 cents are worth anything…lol.}

    can’t wait to see what you are gonna do with it. :D

    p.s. i am SO glad i found your blog last week. it makes me smile.

  2. Rachel, you are so nice to say that! That made my day.

    I’ve never made a pinwheel quilt. Is it just triangles, or is it more involved than that?? Must investigate now….

    I was thinking strips with a solid….but still now sure.
