December 2020 OMG

My December 2020 One Monthly Goal is to make the quilt top for the quilt I plan to give my friend, Kristen, when she has her baby girl this spring. Kristen has requested a quilt with cats and birds featuring purple and teal colors. I have added in blue as a transition between purple and teal. I have decided that the center of the quilt will be the Geometric Cat, pattern by Kristy at Quiet Play. I belong to her paper-pieced 2020 pattern club, and while this is the first of her patterns I am making, I’m sure it won’t be the last. Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I “colored” the coloring page provided in the pattern with scraps of fabric creating a fabric cat collage. I used most of the colors from my Dimension in Dusk Quilt designed by Nydia Kehnle and frequently referenced Nydia’s Dimension in Dusk Color Chart. Someday I hope my digital coloring skills improve enough that I can primarily color my quilts in ProCreate on my iPad but for now creating a rough fabric collage is what works best for me.

I will sharing more about the birds in this quilt in my To-Do Tuesday Weekly Progress Update posts (weekly linky party hosted by my friend, Roseanne, at Home Sewn By Us) as well as the December 2020 OMG Finish post at the end of this month.

    Wow, wow, WOWEE Mary! What a cool project. I hope you take oodles of photos as you work your way through this project. I have been tossing around a similar project in my head but it needs to percolate a bit more. HAHA! Good luck with your goal. You’ve got this. ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. This will be fun to watch as you create it. I’ve pondered joining her pattern group – so tempting. I’m curious to see how you will do the birds!
