    Maybe put fleece on the back so it's reversible to a different texture? If you use fleece, you don't have to use batting. It's both the backing and batting.

    the fall colored one was all scraps. cut 4.5 inches.

    the 30's one was taken from scraps of 30's fabrics..leftovers from other projects,some fat quarters. with white blocks in between each D9P.

    i want to say 6 blocks across and down. 78 x 78 ?
    13" blocks (finished)

    Look here for a little more info on fabric squares used:

    If so, then she'll surely want some velvet or corduroy for some soft texture. Fleece or flannel on the back of it would be ever so soft too.

    Our cats love to lay on things that really contrast with their fur...it makes their beauty show more too.

    Want to go all out for Sassy? Put some ribbons loops on the edges like for a baby... She'll probably play with them too.

    You could also do some embroidery of fish, mice, birds etc to go with the whole kitty good life.

    Enjoy and make your Mom smile with Sassy's quilt.
    This sounds so cute- and the cat would love it! No white, though. I vote no on the white.

    Thanks for all the good ideas! I have fabric lying all over my sewing room, all auditioning for a place in my cat quilt. Once I make one for Mom's cat Sassy, I will probably have to make some for my two cats, for my friend's cats, etc. I may have started a monster.

    But, maybe this will help me visualize quilts? At the least, I will be trying new patterns, as I have not made a D9P yet...though I have wanted to. (I have only been quilting two years...which is why I appreciate all the good ideas!! and pictures.)

    I think shades of blue would be perfect, from very light to dark.

    Shades of blue (or any color for that matter) would make a great looking D9P. Please post a picture of it when you finish.

    Cats always love anything they know they aren't supposed to be on! I have three and try laying out anything with them around!

    I made this D9P in 3 shades of yellow and 3 shades of blue, but it would have worked in just blues or just yellows I think. Having the same print for all the corner blocks and the same check for all the center blocks really ties the whole thing together. This would still work with just blues or any other color, just use a print in that color and a center to tie them all together.

    This probably sounds silly, but I am trying to figure out a small quilt...for my mother's cat...but I suppose that is beside the point. Mom really really only likes blue and has requested blue.

    I have a great deal of trouble visualizing this...wondering about adding white.

    Anyway...has anyone done this? Can I find pictures somewhere?
    Not a D9P but I did this one in 3 shades of blue.

    Ranger and wildyard....beautiful quilts. I have some of that daily fabric, wildyard. I love it.

    I have started on this quilt, and I will post it when I am finished. I didn't quite end up doing what I started out to....not uncommon for me. :)

    [quote=MaryAnnMc]Don't feel too strange abut making a quilt for the cat. I made two "cat mats" for our Spooky, because he was leaving black hair all over the place. He liked them a lot, right up until he realized we really, really wanted him to sleep on them. Now I can't get him anywhere near them. That's a cat for ya! quote]

    Funny, We bought our cats a very soft fuzzy cat bed. They enjoyed is for about a week. Than they stopped sleeping in it and now I have a very soft fuzzy bed that just sits in the floor. I think I am going to donate it to the shelter.

    you want your mum to see what you are making so she can be proud of your accomplishments. She will probably tell all her friends about them. My Aunt does the same thing when ever I give her a quilt. She tells every one about them and even tries to get me to make more so she can get me money as if I need money. I think your mum might be like that ans having one for her cat is her way of having one with out actually asking for one. I made my last cat a quilt and in winter she loved it. She passed last August at the age of 171/2 years.

    You could add some white in with the blue.
