So many cats! It’s a clowder of cats – a glaring of cats – a pounce of cats!
The pattern is so much more than just a pattern. It’s really an applique workshop disguised as a pattern. :-) If you know how to use your sewing machine, you can make this cuddly kitty quilt!
There are links to videos teaching you three different applique techniques – needle turn, machine applique, and applique with fusible adhesive – and the pattern includes pieces laid out special to work with printable products. Why not make the most of the fact that it’s a digital pattern and skip the tracing altogether?
I used applique with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt – almost all done on the machine. The only handwork was the final step of the binding. That’s my favorite part to do by hand because it gives me some lap time with my new quilt. :-)
There are twelve applique patterns (see all twelve cats in the photos above) which you can make into a crib, nap, or twin-sized quilt.
You can also use the applique patterns on their own to embellish T-shirts, make tote bags, pillows and more.
You can even shrink them down to use as embroidery patterns. :-)
