Catitude by Beatrix was a very popular fabric series featuring paisley embellished cats. I recently grabbed one of their panels off of Amazon for a quick cat lap quilt. The panel has four 9 3/4″ squares and a 18″ square section. What could be more fun?
I decided to use some of my excess stash layer cake (10″ squares) batiks to make up a lap quilt. I wanted a simple, quick block and found this one at Missouri Star Quilts on You Tube. https://youtu.be/hC0N2UX_5mI.
I needed some light squares to brighten up all my dark purples and blues and found this in my stash! It is a white on pale cream layer cake. Gee, why didn’t I buy more at the clearance sale 5 years ago?? These are terrific?
Given the paisley design embellishment, I decided to quilt this up using paisley style FMQ including Fin Feathers and Jumbo Paisleys. I divided the quilt top into 9 larger sections for the design.
First, of course, is the SID and I did SID around each 9.25″ block (square with two rectangles). I also outlined the cats and the gold metallic swirls around them with MonoPoly.
Not my best quilting effort, but they can’t all be “best”. It is a cute quilt, however, and I used up some stash!
Happy quilting all! Lennea
