Here is my latest finished quilt, meow!
I'm calling it Modern Cats:this one on Flickr. October is my month to be the quilter for my do. Good Stitches circle, so I asked the other members to make cat blocks in bright solids or black and white prints. But then I just couldn't wait for all of the blocks to roll in, and decided to make a cat quilt of my own. For my cat quilt I actually used the tutorial for making a "basic cat" at Oh, Fransson, and then added wide white borders. It was a quick one to sew up -- I finished it in just a couple of days!
|(my sample blocks for do. Good Stitches)|
Modern Cats, a baby quilt measuring 46 x 36 inches
Fabrics: Kona white background, various black and white prints
Backing: an Ikea houses print I've had forever
Quilting: 30 degree diagonals, spaced 2 1/2 inches apart
(it crinkled up nicely after washing/drying, and I'm glad that the diagonals are still visible!)
Binding: Kona chartreuse, with scraps of black/white dots

Cute quilt, Michelle! I like how you reversed that one block!ReplyDelete
Cute! I've been wanting to make a cat quilt and I love your version :)ReplyDelete
Love the extra frame around the cat blocks - helps to give them a bit of separation. And that reverse block - priceless!ReplyDelete
I love it! I made The Cat last year with the scrappy rainbow colors, but now I'm loving this B&W white that I may make another. The reverse block is just perfect!ReplyDelete
Interesting and love your use of color.ReplyDelete
