I now bring you back to quilty content!
I did manage to get some things finished at the quilt retreat last weekend.
I showed you the HSTs and the Splendid Sampler block. Now I will show you my 2 actual finishes.
I wanted to make this cat pin cushion ever since I won one in a swap.
I was very nervous about doing it though.
I don't seem to do a well working in 3D, LOL.
The person I won the original one from was at the retreat so
I got brave and brought my stuff to make one.
It was very time consuming and hurt my hands as the pieces to turn were tiny and small pieces of sewn felt are difficult to turn right side to.
BUT...it was totally worth the effort!
Please let me present to you my friend Jack!
I am totally smitten!!! He will sit next to my other one.
The pattern was a free one I found on the internet. If you want to try one here is a link to the pattern.
I am in a swap and we are supposed to make an extra.
I found this pouch pattern by Lori Holt of Bee in My bonnet and
decided to add a cat head and make it for my extra.
The orange line near the top is a zipper.
This pouch was super easy to make and I love how it turned out.
You can find the pattern on her blog right here.
I know you sense a theme here with the orange cats.
My best friend cat, Jack, was an orange tabby.
I lost him in 2013 and I still miss him every day.
A classic, Jack-in-a-box
Autumn is trying her best ti fill his shoes. She sleeps with me in the exact same spot he used to.
I am linking up my finish with Crazy Mom Quilts.
Have a wonderful weekend and a blessed Easter.
