Cat block

/ posted in: Quilting

I’ve been seriously slacking on quilting this summer. I’m finally in the mood to start a new quilt. It is inspired by a quilt I saw at a show. I simplified the block a lot but I am still just sort of making it up as I go along.

Cat block

It is a cat if you can’t tell. I’m calling it a folk art cat because I’m making it up so any irregularities I’m going claim are intentional. I’m going to set hourglass blocks opposite the cats. It will look like the cats are in larger squares with colored corners. If you step way back it will look like the cats are floating inside 2 star blocks. This quilt will be a gift for someone I work with.
