Default Folk Art Cat Quilt

At long last I'm finally posting pictures of this quilt. First I have to thank Charisma for her fantastic quilting. Without her brilliant creativity, this quilt could only be considered ordinary. Thank you Charisma!

Each of the blocks in this quilt took me close to 30 hours to complete. They are pieced and appliqued. The sashing is also pieced (1-inch blocks, black & brown fabric). At times I thought I'd never finish this quilt - the burn pile looked really inviting!

Hope you enjoy looking.

I have a sister in law who loves cats. I hope this is a pattern I can buy. Would you share the designer & name of the pattern with us?

Edited to add: I found it on the StitchinPost website. It appears to be on sale right now for $20. I just may have to order it.
