    It doesn't sound silly. I made many quilts for a relative who bred pekes. Most smaller than 2'x2'. I'm sure kitty won't mind what color. The size you're talking about is rather quick to turn out. You can always make a second one with an accent color in it and see which one is preferred.

    Animal Shelters would love some mats too. If you have old blankets or towels also. Please remember our less fortunate furry friends.

    I help out at our local shelter, when I can stand to see them, and I know that towels and blankets of any kind are needed.

    I have seen a truly awesome all-blue quilt here, as someone's avatar. Wish I could remember who it is. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
    Rub some catnip on them and see what he does!

    I lost my cats, 11/10 and 7/27. They both loved to touch anything really soft, like the really soft fleece fabrics. So, maybe a fleece border, where she can reach out & touch the edge while laying on the middle?

    I am quite confident you can only use shades of blue and it will be lovely! Just be sure to stay in the same hue.

    Here is a d9p that a Guild member made out of shades of pink. She used three colors. I think it turned out very nice.

    The cat will really appreciate wool batting ... An old sweater if the quilt is small.

    I,m a pretty good visualizer, the D9P sounds like a great idea.

    Haven't made a pad for the cat but put a half yd piece of fleece at the foot of my bed and the two cats take turns on who is going to sleep with me on the fleece. Mine is just a piece with cats all over it. I know your Mom's cat will love it and I like the idea of the soft (fleece) as a trim. They do like to knead the soft stuff. Sometimes they even do it in their sleep.

    My cat loves to sit on my wip all the time. I should make him his own, but then he wants what ever you have... so actually all the quilts are his :D

    I would do a dark blue tone on tone, a medium blue tone on tone, and a white and blue print (the center square). Doing a D9P in these would be very striking!

    here is a picture of a D9P WIP all done in black and red. I think I'm going to love it when it's done.

    Mom doesn't really like quilts, so this is as close as I can get to getting to make Mom a quit. :) (So why do I take my quilts to show to her??? Don't have an answer for that...hoping she will really like one, I guess.)
    Just because your mom doesn't like quilts for 'her' doesn't mean she can't be proud of what her darling daughter accomplishes and enjoy the show and tell!

    Shades of blue would be wonderful ... you can get blue so light it's almost white if you have a hankering to put white in it.

    I made a 9 patch with a snowball block in between; had 9 different fabrics for the patch, just varied their location, the snowball with green with a darker green in corner which was also a border. Don't have a photo, but it's very pleasing color-wise

    here is a picture of one done in 30's fabric, like a regular 9 patch,then cut for the D9P..and one done totally scrappy. they look so different.! i have done the scrappy, with just the center block the same color/fabric in all the blocks.

    no matter how you out it together..you can't go wrong!
