Free Pattern Friday: Fat Cats in the City

I sewed this quilt for Benartex Fabrics in 2011 and it was published in a quilt magazine. I call it Fat Cats in the City. It is based on an appliqué cat pattern I designed for my 2006 Block a Day calendar. I gave each of the 4 cats a different tie. I think it's cute, don't you?

Personally, I'm not a cat person (I love dogs), but I think these cats transcend any animal preferences, don't you?

I used raw edge appliqué for these 10" blocks. The quilt size is 41" x 41". A perfect size for a child!

I took the outline of my Fat Cat and quilted inside it. I use this for my machine quilting classes.

The pattern is a 4 page pdf in color as it appeared in the magazine. Enjoy! Fat Cats in the City.

  2. Thank you, Debby! I am a big kitty-cat fan (like dogs, too, but not as much) and this fat cat in the city just makes me smile. I mentor a little 7 yr old who is learning to sew and she loves cats. What could be more fun than teaching her raw edge appliqued cats. Perfect.

  3. I have always liked this pattern. I AM a cat lover (I'm on a roll today - LOL!) and the ties on the fat cats make this a wonderful humorous quilt. Thank you for sharing the pattern.
