    Red face Using Cat Fabric

    I still consider myself a beginner when it comes to quilting. Over the years I have collected a huge stash of cat-related fabrics that I would love to use in a quilt. To all of you seasoned quilters, what pattern would you suggest for making this quilt to be able to see and appreciate my adorable cat fabric?

    Thank you so much. I'll try to find a sample of it to take a look.

    Here is a link to several cat themed quilts I have done. Both cat blocks and quilts showcasing cat fabric. the second grouping of pictures is Attic Windows

    Here is a really cute quilt a client made showcasing cat fabrics in cat blocks. I took it the next step further with some really intense cat quilting in the borders

    You can showcase your cat fabrics in sew many ways. The centers of sawtooth star blocks (AKA a 6 pointed star), framed squares, the possiblities are endless. The Cat's Meow by Janet Klime has loads of cute cat patterns where you can showcase your cat fabrics.

    Cat Quilts

    Here are two cat quilts that I made. The Attic Windows was done from one fabric, fussy cutting the cats. Oops only one picture loaded, will try again later.

    I made little girl quilts with fussy cut cats and "Hole in the Barn Door" blocks to frame the fuzzy cuts.

    Any of the "I spy" quilts featured on this board would let you use lots of different cat fabrics. I also have a huge under-bed storage box full of cat prints, but I won't cut them, so now it's a collection and I just enjoy looking at them.

    I just finished a cat quilt using "Warm Wishes". It came out very cute. My grandkids gave me fat quarters for Christmas. Good luck.
