Cat and Mouse

I started designing a few quilt patterns back in 2006 and found it very inspiring. After that, I thought I needed to explore other designer’s patterns and learned many different techniques. With the internet such a great place to explore; it is always intriguing what creative people experiment with and come up with for new ideas.

Also, on this journey—I have found many great sites to learn through videos and online classes and find an endless supply of new projects to add to the wish list. May you find this collection another way to give your home another spark of color and warmth.

PART ONE
 
Quilt Bindings
 
Quilts add color to any space they occupy; sometimes, they are meant to just add color and warmth to a particular place in our homes. At other times, they are a warm, cozy covering as we sleep.

So, I thought—why not add a splash of color to our computer work station—as many of us tend to spend a lot of time there. And, I like the idea of giving this mechanical mouse a cozy quilt to sit on as we do our work. There we can enjoy this mini quilt as we dream up new ideas, or find more projects to add to our wish list.

MINI QUILTS—MOUSE PADS

The first four designs from this collection include:



Cat and Mouse

In this design, give the cat opportunity to play the game, "cat and mouse” while you traverse through your favorite websites.


 


 Mac and Me

If we relate to our favorite technology, then we don't just think of apples as fruit. Cheers to those that love their "Mac".






Curling Rocks

Know someone that loves curling? If you do, then you know that curling is never far from their minds, and this design will definitely be a hit. “Hurry hard!”






Wind Blown Rose

This design will be as delightful to make, as it will be to give to someone you love or keep for yourself—allowing it to reflect your affections. Whether you think of long stemmed roses, or those cheery wild roses growing out in nature; they all have a cheery disposition.





My patterns (currently fused applique) include:
  • Colored illustrations
  • Clear instructions
  • Full-size templates for the applique pieces, already reversed for the fusible applique process. 
  • All these designs are fast and easy and will make a great gift to give to someone that you love, even yourself.
