Hello Quilters! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written a blog post. Life gets SO busy… But today I have some exciting quilty news to share. My friend Pamela Morgan has a new book release and I’m here to help kick off her blog tour! Purr-fect Patchwork… for Modern Cat People!
In case we haven’t properly met, I’m Sherri, the designer behind Rebecca Mae Designs. Welcome, and thanks for joining me on the Purr-fect Patchwork blog tour! :)
I have to give you a little background first… I met Pam by chance back in 2016 at Sew Pro in Chicago. We randomly sat next to each other at dinner one night and began chatting… fast forward five years and we are now good friends, even though we live clear across the country from each other. Sometimes you just click with someone, get their weird (on my part) sense of humor lol. Plus, Pam is also an amazing professional photographer and has photographed some of my quilts… AND she photographed ALL the projects in her book! There is some serious quilty eye candy to enjoy!
Pam asked me to make her Chasing Dreams quilt in a second colorway and I was happy to help!!! This quilt, with all the embroidery stitches, applique and piecing was right up my ally! I made mine in scrappy pinks, purples and orange…
I love a scrappy quilt… and those flying geese were a perfect way to use treasured scraps from my stash… and I also loved playing with all the wool applique on this quilt… If you have not tried wool applique, you really must! I enjoy it SO MUCH! Here are some close up pics…
Pam also asked me if I would give you all a little tutorial on how I hand couched my yarn ball to the quilt…. so if you’d like to see how I made mine, here is a little video tutorial!
Of course… a blog hop isn’t complete without a GIVEAWAY!!!
I am giving away an ECopy of Purr-Fect Patchwork! (international quilters eligible!)
