Cats, quilts and new adventures!

I visited the NEC with my mum last week for another craft show ‘sewing for pleasure’. Once again, I left in total awe of the talented people there and their amazing abilities. I went there quite clearly with cats & quilts on the brain. I came away with cat fabric, bias binding and wadding.

So..at the weekend I embarked on a new project.  A patchwork quilt for my cats to sit on in my sewing room.  The fabric patterns are squares with cats on along with some sewing patterned fabric.  The quilt says it all for me really, my love of sewing combined with my obsessive love of cats 🙂

this was my first attempt at bias binding and it certainly looks easier than it actually is to use. I have some ‘puckering’ of the bias? Any suggestions what I have done wrong to have that happen folks? I used 2 different colours too (the lengths I brought were not long enough, so had to improvise) so my corners aren’t great? In general, I am over the moon with my first attempt.

I found a template for the cute cat heart patch to put in the corner to finish it off too! I love it !

The big test will be if I can actually allow my furry friends to sit on it 🙂
