    Tuxedo Kitten Quilt

    This is my first trial of the Kitten pattern. I'm giving him to my DGD, but I think I need to make another one for me...or for my kitties who will surely claim it as their own! He's only an 8 hour project, so I think he'll be on my machine again soon!

    I made him out of glacier fleece-the really soft stuff and he turned out so nice!

    I gotta tell you, this is a pretty fun project! I think this style of baby quilts deserves a place in modern quilting, don't you?

    Oh-I might have to put a collar on him with a fish shaped name tag with my DGD's name! Gotta go do that now - bye! I'll add another picture with the addition later!

    Great Idea to make as a cat mat. Is this a pattern you developed and are selling? Details please.

    All done now! I finished the line to define his face by his tail, found some bright pink corduroy for the collar and used the same fleece for the name tag that I used for his eyes! I just love him-I don't really want to send him to DGD yet, I want to play with him for a while!

    He's 40x46". He should be perfect for a drag around lovey quilt, don't you think?

    That is wonderful. I am sure it will be your DGD's constant companion. A hypoallergenic cat too.

    I know and she Loves, loves hanging out with me in the sewing room. I guess if she had her own quilt she may just give me back that purple fabric that I need for a backing.

    I had a couple of pm's asking how he's made. He's about 40x48" and made from glacier fleece-the really soft stuff!
    I put a layer of batting in this one too, though sometimes I don't with fleece. I fuse all of the pieces in place and mark the stitching lines before I put him together. Sew with right sides together, flip him right side out, close the opening and stitch about a 3/8" faux binding. Then I satin stitch (or blanket stitch) around all of the fused appliqué pieces, satin stitch the definition lines and voila'-he's done. 8 hours flat. OK, 9 hours, I had to add the collar and name tag-see the pic in the middle of page 2! That's it. Couldn't be easier!
