Another name on the pages is The Dread Pirate Rodgers Quilting Page.
I swapped with the Dread Pirate, were you there too??!! If you look close you can see some of the same fabrics in her's as in mine here:

There are many ways to get the pattern if you can't draft it yourself, from buying just the magazine issue or issues on disk.

I think the one PeaceandJoy is thinking of is Kool Kats Kwilt by Patti Carey

Thank you, Cattitude (love that name!). I did see that one, it's one of the ones in the link I shared. The one that was posted here ages ago was more like Pins and Paws, but the creator had figured out how to adjust the background and cats so that where there is usually background it was another cat. It was quite clever.

Our daughters and I are all cat lovers. I grew up on a farm and when a litter of kittens was born, when they were big enough, Dad put them in his denim coat, buttoned it up and brought them to show me. I don't know if he was trying to entice me to come to the barn to see them (I hated it, the cows scared me and there were too many spiders) or if he was just showing me the kittens, but it started a life long love of cats.

Did the original person find the quilt pattern they were looking for? I'm curious to know what it was/is.

Here is pic of a kitty quilt I made several years ago. I found the pattern in an old issue of McCalls Quilting October, 2000 called Kitty Cat Charms,but have been told that it is in a book by Robert Callaham called The Cat's Meow.

Pattern was found!! It IS actually the pattern that was in McCalls Quilting October called Kitty Kat Charms. But along the search, I found one by Villa Rosa Designs called Cat City that makes a 42" x 56" for a Project Linus quilt. This is basically the same pattern as in the McCalls issue just done up smaller. But the icing on the cake was an adorable kitten in a basket free pattern from Windham Fabrics (PDF) called "Baskets of Fun" 57" x 68". I can see myself making more than a few of any of these patterns for Project Linus. Now, anyone have a cute puppy pattern??

Thank you everyone....all of your suggestions were purrrrrfect!

What a great idea! That would be a great quilt for Project Linus. I've collected a bunch of animal "skin" prints to make a cat quilt, but didn't think of Project Linus. Thanks.
