Soft Kitty quilt blocks

Posted on: February 8th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Well, we have more snow!  And the kids are home again today…  And the dishes need done again, too…

But I am not letting any of that bother me.  Making progress on the baby girl – Soft Kitty – quilt.  Have the Kitty blocks done and am now in need of more Wonder Under, as I am down to one sandwich bag full of small scrappy bits!

After making the baby boy – Puppy Love quilt, I decided that I liked the look of all brown and white for the animals, so these cats have no black.  I did really love that little Scottie dog though!

I went through my fabric stash yesterday and made choices for the remaining blocks.  The Kitty blocks finish at 9″.  The remaining blocks are 6″ and 3″, laid out in the same fashion as the Puppy Love quilt.  And I am planning on using the same binding and binding method.

Hope to get some progress made on assembling the top this afternoon…. As I contemplate the next baby quilt… A nature theme?

There is one other applique block not shown.  It is the object of the kitties’ attention.  Can you guess what has their eye?

    This is amazing, love these kittens. I imagine each block could make a great pillow pattern. They chasing a fish, mouse or ball.

  2. Thank you Sally! Those three are great guesses, but the answer can be found in my Sew Fresh Quilts blog cover photo now. And will be shown later today in a post. I am sew close to being finished the Soft Kitty quilt!
