Cat Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The way I used the bright colours and also managed to enlarge it without loosing the integrity of the design. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I cut out two squares of lots of different fabrics then did a mix and match layout on the floor. I ended up choosing the highly patterned fabrics for the cats on top of more subdued pieces. I also decided to use little wool felt circles for the eyes and did several rounds of free motion to hold them on. I just thought buttons might be too bumpy.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric

Q&A with valspierssews

mimis quilts asked:
fun and great idea about the wool eyes.
valspierssews answered:
Hi Mimi thanks. I couldn't imagine jumping on a quilt that had buttons. The felt only needed a few swirls of free motion to hold them on and look great.
lcid asked:
Love it as well as the border and the bag! Great job.
valspierssews answered:
Thanks. I just saw it today on my daughter's bed when she skyped me. It was a great project. I might make myself one one day.
