White Cat Crazy Quilt

Here's an update on my White Cat Crazy Quilt project:

The yellow flowers on the vine to the left are little gathered Picot Edge Satin Ribbon flowers.  Picot edge ribbons are approx. 1/4 of an inch wide and available at any craft store.  They come in tons of colors but I like to dye my own so that they're slightly shaded.  Satin ribbons take to dyeing very well and I use Rit dye for these so it's very affordable to do.  To gather, just cute the ribbon into 5 inch lengths and do a running stitch along one edge.  Gather it up, tie it off and sew it on.  Easy as pie!

In other news, the Spring 2012 issue of Pat Winter's Gatherings magazine is now available:

Pat's magazine is a must have for Crazy Quilters, Embroiderer's and textile artists!  And it's a must for anyone who just likes to look at pretty pictures of needlework!  Gorgeous! 

Finally for today, my latest YouTube video on my Crazy Quilt Purses.  Enjoy!

Such a cute wee kittie - love the expression on her face. My issue of the mag came today & can't wait to settle down tonight and have a good read.

I love your Crazy Quilt Bags! I am also very happy to know you will be carrying on for Pat Winters. She has been such an inspiration to me. Her magazines are so wonderful I re-read them all the time. My hands cannot work fast enough!
