Catventquiltalong

Back in the beginning of December Oh, Fransson posted that she would put up one cat pattern per day for December and she called it Catvent!  Cat Cuteness!  

I made a few


But then time became my enemy, and I had to put away the fun for the more pressing Christmas sewing.  I got back to them earlier this week, as I had already made 4, I at least wanted to get a mini size of cat faces.


I decided I could go with a pillow and not have to make all 25 cats, although I might make more one day.


It enjoyed picking out the color for each cat, my newly organized scrap buckets helped.


I made 3 buckets of colors - red/orange/pink, blue/green/purple, black/white/gray/brown and one for solids.  It was so easy to find the right scraps.  I bought these containers at Walmart and they stack up nicely.

I had an 18" pillow form so that is the size pillow I went with.


Each cate had a name, and these are the first 8, I have two of the first pattern, I must have liked it so much I made it twice.  So I actually have one small cat face left over.  He might be a coaster one day to match the pillow.

I used minky on the back, in case the recipient wanted extra softness.

Keep Calm and Quilt On!

Your cat pillow is really cute! The quilting sets it off very nicely.
