Thread: Book wanted

    Hello: Just before i became interested in quilting, I donated a wonderful craft book with a Grandma on the cover with a red work cat quilt. I do not recall the title or the author. Now, a dear friend, certainly a cat lover, is undergoing chemo and radiation. I thought if I could find the pattern, I'd make him a cat quilt. I believe the quilt had 12 squares of the same cat in different poses. Maybe it was Better Homes and Gardens, but an Internet search has proved futile. I would appreciate any info.
    My newbie skills will not advance the quilt execution. Do not know how to paper piece, etc. but have decent embroidery skills. Time is essential since his prognosis is not good.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Applique is quick and easy ! Can you find pictures of cats ( coloring pages is a great place to start ) applique them to fabric and make a quick quilt that way ?

    Cat Quilts and Crafts by LaVera Langeman--I saw it on Amazon. It is an applique book with lots of poses of cute cats.

    Here's a pattern for redwork cats on eBay:

    You might want to search on "craft book" on eBay. There are pages and pages of them! If you have the time to look, you might recognize the cover in the little photos to the left of the list.

    Here's a book of kitty redwork patterns:
