I have the good fortune to again be published in the Quilting Arts Holiday issue. This time I am sharing my design for a little modern fancy cat pillow. Whether you want to make a nice pouf for your kitty or a fun pillow for a kitty lover, this pattern fits the bill. This fancy cat features cute coral bow ties, this coral color is so fun and I found some fabric with metallic accents. This would be also look pretty stitched up with red bow ties for the holidays too.
This issue is always filled with lot of inspiration and ideas for handmade gifts for the holiday season. I think the striped trees on the cover by Jennifer Heynen are just adorable.
Pillows are a great way to try out your quilting skills too. I used straight stitch walking foot quilting as seen here as well as free motion quilting. This pillow is an envelope style, so you can just cover a pillow form you already have if you want.
Check out this issue, it should be available now in US stores. Happy Stitching!
