Cats and Quilts

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I'd started a thread before with my little helpers checking out whether I was appropriately following my plan as I laid out a quilt on the floor. But like many others, that thread disappeared in the crash. Here are two recent photos of my furbabies, though. Purdy, like a good soul, just watched me check out that border from an observation point off the quilt.




Sheba, though she is usually good about going around instead of walking on the quilt, decides to cut a few corners.

If anyone else has images with cats and quilts (finished or not), please post them.

I love Sheba's look when she's walking over the quilt, lol, very "yeah, and?".

And Purdy looks so lovely just sitting there!

Gizmo helping make sure the machine applique is going just right:


No mom, I don't know why its in the floor!

Oh, I love the one with the cats checking out that machine applique! I had some patchwork on the machine a week or so ago while I walked across the room and Sheba jumped up on the sewing chair with her little paws up on the sewing cabinet like she was ready to sew. It was soooooo cute! But I just wasn't fast enough in grabbing the camera to get a photo. Of course, it will probably never happen again when I do have the camera handy, either.

Can you pick out the kitties who aren't part of the quilt?

while i don't make quilts, i like them & have them in my house. here's some pics:
Pixel, on my bed


Mouse on a 'cat quilt' i bought from place online. that's also where their donut beds came from.


Cable on a 'cat quilt'


the 'cat quilts' all have cat themed fabrics, as do the beds. unfortunately, the website is no longer there!

Oh, isn't that one fun! I like the block, too. I'm assuming it is pieced, not appliqued. How is it constructed? I can't quite see where the seams are. Do you have a close-up photo of a block, by chance? It looks like an easy enough block that I could even use for my charity quilts.

Yup, I made it, well, actually, I made blocks of it, then swapped with others so we all had lots of different colored kitties. But, I have two words for this one, NEVER AGAIN ! I love it, and love the kits, but that flannel drives me nutsy sewing it. As a matter of fact, that picture is just the blocks laid out so I could see them all, the quilt itself has never been put together .

you could make it with just cotton calico, couldn't you? that'd be easier, i bet - i wouldn't know 'cause i've never made one. i did find a cat-themed quilt online yesterday, & ordered it - i'll add a pic when it arrives!

Two of my furbabies nap close together on one of my quilts.

I have an 18x60 inch pressing table in my sewing room, but since it is nicely padded and with a great view of the bird feeders, my cats have tried to claim it as their very own. To avoid getting cat hair all over the items I am making, I made a special quilt for the pressing table, which is just for them. Though they almost never nap this close together, I caught both of them on the table taking a snooze tonight while I sewed. And yes, I ended up using the ironing board to do my pressing. I just didn't have the heart to wake them.

I thought I'd resurrect this thread to show Sheba back at my quilts again. I had tried so hard to keep this large unfinished quilt free of cat hair before the quilt show where I'd planned to display it. But wouldn't you know it, while I went upstairs to make a cup of tea she snuggled right in before I had it done. Note those large-headed quilt pins holding the binding at her side. She has been a fanatic about trying to steal those off my quilts and run with them.

Here is another of Red Cat, dirty nose and all. I especially liked the way his face and paw were reflected in the mirrored buffet.

Sheba is back at it again! I was trying to put the borders on this quilt tonight, and Sheba was just determined to sit on it. I finally did get three of the borders on, but gave up on the fourth. Ah, tomorrow when the painter is here she will go back into hiding mode and perhaps I can finish it!

very cute pics! Don't they just LOVE to be on top of whatever your doing? Or under for my Louie's sake!

Yes, you are right about the "getting under" bit. Yesterday I discovered Sheba had pawed through a pile of fabrics I had on the table for use in another quilt. She'd made quite a mess of it but was so cute with just her head sticking out from a pile of various colored fabric. Too bad I didn't have my camera handy to capture that one.
