Kiss My Stash

Kiss My Stash is an applique kit that I received as a birthday present in 2015. After waiting patiently for four years, it finally became a quilt top last weekend.

I didn’t notice until I saw the picture on the computer screen, but the grid lines from the flannel design wall show through the quilt top.

The pattern is by Sandy Fitzpatrick at Hissyfitz Designs with a finished size of 22″ x 37″. I made three color changes to the design – the cat in the original pattern was brown, however all my cats are grey in memory of Gus. For the flange around the sign I found a piece of orange fabric with brown stripe to represent a measuring tape. I wasn’t all that interested in marking lines on a long piece of yellow strip as the directions said.

The third change was the hands. The pattern had red hands. Really, red hands? I found a nice tan batik in my stash that looks so much better – at least in my opinion.

Once the top is quilted, buttons will be added to the crown points and the shoes. This was such a fun project and makes me smile every time I look at her.

Happy Quilting,
