    Cat Quilt for Heather

    I love cats and so does my former DIL Heather. I found this pattern in an Australian quilting magazine and saved it till I was home and could cut into my scraps. I found some fish fabric so there is a 'catfish', I named most of the cats in the quiilt so I had a good time making it. I did change things a bit and that was a problem. I decided to make the head and ears out of a flying geese thingy and wing it on my own. I had notime to take it to a LAQ so I just did it myself. We loved it and so did Gracie, her cat. I forgot to take pictures when I was finished I was in that much of a hurry so I had her take some photos with her IPhone. Sorry the pictures aren't so great, but it's really much more colorful and pretty than the photo.

    I love that quilt for doing scrappy style. Yours turned out great.

    I made one out of homespuns http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ts-t22342.html and quilted another for a client made all out of contemporary cat prints http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...c-t182446.html.

    The pattern can also be found in Janet Kime's book The Cat's Meow along with loads of other cute cat quilt patterns.

    What a cool quilt and I am not being 'catty'! I am borrowing this idea to use as a border around the quilt I plan to make for next grandchild's graduation next year.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Too cute, you can tell that Gracie has already claimed it as her own. She is adorable.

    Beautiful quilt. I have three cats. Because of shedding they don't get to enjoy my quilts. Keeping them clean, in case I find someone that needs a quilt.
