Bloggers Quilt Festival

I decided to join the Bloggers Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy at Park City Girl after seeing so many other quilters show their favorite quilts on their blogs. I chose this cat quilt because it makes me smile. It is definitely a quirky quilt. I don't remember where the pattern came from but I do know that I purchased it at a quilt shop probably 8 or so years ago. (I apologize to the designer for not being able to give them credit here.) The fabric is a mix of cottons and flannels and the quilting is very simple machine stitching in the ditch. What I love about it is the random use of color and the combination of different materials like flannel for the cats' faces and buttons for embellishment. There is a little bit of handwork on the dress collars. This was a fun quilt to make because it used all sorts of techniques to keep me interested it it to the very end. I sometimes get bored with a quilt and have to put it down for a while. I guess that is why I have so many UFO's and WIP's!




Thanks for coming by for a look at my part of the quilt festival. Please let me know that you were here!

Love the kitties. I have used a couple of the fabrics in your quilt and know they are from different collections and even are of very different feels. I love to play like that too.

I love your funky cats- they make me smile - It has been a very fun festival to read about all the different quilts that are special to others.
The biggest drawback is that I can not read fast enough to visit all the wonderful quilts before tomorrow.. LOL
