Live, Laugh, Love and Feed the Cat...


Many quilters love both cats and quilts, and I'm no exception. So when I saw this "Feed the Cat" pattern in my local quilt shop, I just had to make one! Kitty is machine appliqued using fusible web and a buttonhole stitch along the edges. The pattern is from Cheryl Gunn, Waltzing with the Bears. I used some squares from a Moda charm pack for the border pieces, and for the spots on the cat.

The big photo is a bit dark, so you can't see the magenta spots very well. This detail photo shows them better, and you can see Kitty's expression, too. I began the quilt as a donation for our guild's silent auction. However, I got liking it too much, so it's going to hang in my home. I've started another cat quilt for the auction.... that one will be coming here soon!

Nancy I LOVE that one too. Great job! I'm going to have to look for that pattern. I've got just the spot to display that size too.
