I’m so excited to show you my row project! If you have books and cats, you need somewhere to put them…
A quilty kitty bookcase. Suitable for hanging on your wall or cuddling on your couch.
(Daughter not included. ) This is the first time I’ve finished my show and tell effort and I’m so excited to have it done! (OK, full disclosure…I need to finish hand-sewing down the sleeve.) I tried the wavy organic lines on the quilting and, while I love how it looks, I have to say that I couldn’t get my walking foot to not threaten puckers so I did them free-hand which was kind of stressful. If there’s interest, I’ll be happy to post directions but, in a nutshell, I just raided my scrap strip drawers and made random sizes…books were 7″, 8″, 10″ or as small at 6″ finished with enough background to create a 12.5″ unifinished book. I added another 2.5″ book to the original row and the quilt finished around 40″x50″. 2.5″ brown strips between the rows made shelves and I think I used just about every inch of the lovely Northcott fabric I used for the background!
There’s a giveaway today, too, from the wonderful Fat Quarter Shop! (A $25.00 gift certificate!) We just couldn’t have had all this fun without Marian at Seams to be Sew and be sure to check out her blog for more fun things coming up! And many, many thanks to our sponsors…you all are the bestest!
