This one is for the cat lovers out there. Cat Treats is features some cute little kitties looking over their shoulders for a treat. Fish Bones. Yummy!
This has to be one of my all time favourite finishes. I love the design. And the backing. And the quilting. I just love it all!
These little cats were a lot of fun to make. And the Fish Bones blocks were quick to piece using the strip piecing method. No paper piecing for me.
Cat Treats was made using a selection of Cotton Couture from Michael Miller Fabrics. The green background is Kryptonite. The cats are Cappuccino & Toffee, Ginger & Honey, and Clay & Ozone.
I adore the crazy birds in this fun backing. The print is Robin in the Hood in Aqua. To avoid having to make a matched seam, I used a strip of Bahama Blue. This sweet birdie print is a nice compliment to the playful cats. And helps to lighten things up!
For this one I dug into my stash of Superior Threads and chose a cone of variegated brown for the top and used plain white thread in the bobbin. However, I stuck to my trademark organic wavy lines for a fast and fun quilting finish. I chose black for the binding to match the cat's eyes and the bird legs. I love the dark frame this black binding provides.
The Cat Treats pattern is now listed for sale in my pattern shop. This quilt is made using traditional methods and is not paper pieced. The pattern provides material requirements, cutting instructions and detailed step-by-step directions. Here it is with a pink background using an Electric Quilt mock up.
