Hi Quilting Friends,
Orange you glad that you stopped by today, during the “Orange You Glad!” blog hop? We’d like to send a great big “Thank You!” to our quilting friend Carla from “Creatin’ in the Sticks” for hosting today’s festivities. We hope that you’ll be inspired!
Orange is a color that most of us either love or hate. Frank Sinatra once said, “Orange is the happiest color”, so we know how Frank felt about orange. We agree that orange really grabs one’s attention.
We use orange sparingly in our quilts, because a little bit of orange packs a big punch. Orange brings sparkle to our Halloween quilts each year, and we’ve included it in a few of our other designs as well.
Today’s project is a set of adorable coasters that Susan designed and stitched up. These cute appliqued kitties have met a new friend (or maybe a nemesis, we’re just not sure). In any case, the cats are keeping an eye on things to see what develops.
These curious kitties are created with easy raw-edge applique, and the creepy spiders are actually printed on the background fabric that Susan chose. You could add an embroidered spider (or several) to each kitty coaster if you’re not able to find suitable printed fabric. Susan used plenty of orange fabric when she stitched them up. Sew cute!!! 👀
UPDATE: Congratulations to Joan K, winner of the “Halloween Kitty” coaster pattern! We hope that you’ll enjoy the pattern.
