โค๏ธ Day 12: Love is Love ๐ŸŒˆ

While not technically a Valentine’s idea, what better tribute can there be to love?

I stitched up a small quilt honoring the rainbow flag, with my cat Jackson wearing his heart on his…umm…fur? The quilt actually does have straight lines, I simply did not have time to photograph properly before leaving town on a business trip โ˜บ๏ธ.

Supplies: 6 FQs from this incredibly fun “Crayola” solid collection, 6 matching shades of Aurifil 50wt (+ black), MistyFuse (I like to fuse my small quilt layers so that they do not shift at my Bernina), scraps of black cotton (Uppercase Vol 3 ๐Ÿ’œ) and red wool, and the outline of my beloved black cat.

I stitched 2 1/2″ strips together in the correct order, then fused Jackson into position, and stitched simple matchstick quilting to give the piece texture.

In case you’d like to borrow my cat ๐Ÿ˜‰:

Stay warm…I’m headed out into -16 degree weather ๐Ÿฅถ…
