My latest fabric collection, Purr-fect Balance with Quilting Treasures, featuring kitties in cute yoga poses, is now in fabric stores. I want to share some free quilt and sewing patterns that I designed with this collection, a quilt, tote bag, and a yoga mat bag. You can view the fabrics in my prior post for Purr-fect Balance fabrics.
This quilt is 44″ x 55 ¼” in size, which is a good size for a throw quilt or wall hanging. You can even lay it on the floor for your yoga workout. The skill level for the quilt is advanced beginner.
These bags are for a roomy tote to carry your yoga clothes or for shopping. The other bag is to hold your rolled up yoga mat. Maybe these fabrics can entice your cat to help you with yoga, although he or she will be trying to help the minute you get down on the floor.
I hope you have fun with these patterns and fabrics. I love cats, needless to say, (and dogs too), and designed the fabrics in happy and bright colors.
All patterns are available for free download from the Quilting Treasures website. Click on the link below the quilt and it will give you the links to the individual patterns.
Happy sewing and quilting,
I just finished a new quilt pattern, Kitty Workout, using my new kitty yoga “Purr-fect Balance” fabrics featuring fun and whimsy kitties in yoga poses. This pattern was designed for the Quilt Dash August 15 – 29, 2014 and is now available through the WhimsyColor online shop.
It’s free to complete the Quilt Dash, where you visit online quilt stores to obtain pieces of the patterns. While in the stores, you are sure to find some fabrics or other items that you need for your sewing/quilting habit! For Quilt Shops, there is still time to sign up to get lots of new visitors to your stores.
This “Kitty Workout” quilt is 52″ x 60 1/4″ and is a good size to use for yoga or a lap quilt. It’s easy for an advanced beginner to intermediate quilter. The “Purr-fect Balance” fabrics are from Quilting Treasures and will be great for sewing or quilting a gift for both someone who loves cats or yoga or both.
Happy Quilting and Meow to you!
I always get excited with a new fabric collection and am extremely so with my next collection Purr-fect Balance. Created in bold colors, Purr-fect Balance has 16 cats in yoga poses along with some snarky names of yoga poses created in kitty lingo.
I designed this collection for Quilting Treasures. Since it’s still in printing, Quilting Treasures is taking pre-orders from quilt and fabric stores for shipping in November 2014. If you have a favorite fabric store, you can check with them on ordering this collection.
A couple of months ago, I received small sample pieces of each fabric to review for approval. Not to let any scrap go to waste, I designed and created a small quilt to show at Quilt Market. I don’t have a pattern available for this one, but will work up one soon. In addition, I will let you know about free quilt and sewing patterns to go with these fabrics.
My kitty was the inspiration behind these fabrics although his poses were mostly curling up in sleep. But he did have some great sleep poses and funny positions. RIP Kitty Kat.
I hope that you will add some furry love to your quilting and sewing!
