Purple cow and Hidden Gems

Purple cow had her ear surgery and is now quite happy to join the last week of January's Rainbow Scrappy Challenge. She also thought I should mention that she is wearing yellow as an accessory to her purpleness because it is purple's complementary color. This is following a method that Cathy of Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilts has used for many of her RSC projects.

I also had to make pinwheels with half square triangles because I love the Hidden Gems quilt that Chantal made over at At the Corner of Scraps and Quilts.

And here is Molly one year ago. At this point she was a solo kitten because her brother Typhoon (now Buddy) was at the local animal shelter working very hard not to get adopted.

  5. I remember that - poor Buddy had to work really really hard in order to get to come back home. It takes a lot of extra effort when you're as cute as he is. (And obviously he missed his adorable big sister, as who wouldn't?)
    Love love love that purple cow, and I've been making those pinwheel blocks, too, after seeing them on Chantal's blog over the last couple of years.

  12. Has Molly decided to keep the cow's front legs glued together? A little spacing might be nice.

  13. I'm so glad you didn't mention Typhoon's criminal past. Buddy is a model cat! And you can see the greatness in Kitten Molly. I just love your complementary cow (and that squirrel too!) Will there be patterns?
