    Hi Ruhie, That same pattern is on my list of projects to do. There is also a pattern on my list at http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpatternsprojects/ss/cat_quilt.htm
    called Catching the View, that I thought you might be interested in. I have not started either yet. Trying to finish all my UFO's am on my last two. Boy it feels good! Have Fun.

    I've been looking at that one. I downloaded the templates, I have a collection, maybe Ill put them onto something' There is a lady I read about on the net who puts a cat in the corner of every quilt.

    Wow, now that is an idea for a signature. Guess it is already taken. I was at a site today that has a bunch of free motifs. You could actually use some for stiching. One is with a cute cat. I was thinking maybe, but too cutsie for me. But there are alot of neat motifs which gave me ideas.

    ME TOO!

    My (twin) sis loves black cats w gold eyes, and our Abernathy has won over my heart, though the dear thing prefers to hang out in the blocked offkitchen away from the dobermans and standard poodle.

    One of my nephews recently got himself one,too.

    If you want cats in your quilts, you should look for the "Cat's Meow" book by Janet Kime. It is all about cats, in the patterns and borders. Really cute!

    I have a UFO "Garden Trellis" quilt I need to finish, and the main fabric is lots of little kitties playing in a sewing room.

    You can find it on Amazon.com. Its not old, and everything in the book is about cats. Good luck!

    Here is the link to the McCall's pattern from 1997. I looked it up on their website.

    Cat's Who Quilt seems to be a story book, from the previews on that other website.

    All they do there is give you the same link to McCalls. I can not find it on the McCalls site. Does someone have the exact page on the McCalls site where the pattern is? That is what I meant with the last ?

    If you go to the McCall's Quilting home page there is a small search window on the right side. Type in Stairway to Cat Heaven. There will be some odd cat related things that show on the next screen, but if you scroll down, you'll see Stairway to Cat Heaven and when you click on it, you'll get the directions.

    I just checked out that Cats Who Quilt site. It's cute but she doesn't have any free patterns as far as could see. Her link's, I'm afraid, were not very good. Only one actually gave some free patterns and they were not terribly inspiring . The last link didn't even go to any type of quilt site. The choices it offered were completely unrelated to quilting. Sonny Warner became related to suny weather :-o :lol: :?: I didn't try her McCalls link because I had allready downloaded that pattern. Still I like hearing about new sites cause ya never know what ya might find.

    I'm sure I've neglected to do something properly, but I cannot find the directions to make the "cat's stairway to heaven quilt." I also want to make this quilt. I went to McCallsquilting.com but then where from there? Does anyone know the month and year of the magazine issue? Thanks.

    I would like to make this quilt too. We just had to send our 18 year old baby (human years) to heaven do to cancer. My daughter is heartbroken and this quilt would be perfect. Only thing is, the quilt isn't at that address anymore. Can someone who has the pattern send it to me? If not, I'll try to wing it by using the pictures.
    Thank you,
