The only way a cat can ever come into our home would be in this form.
I'm severely allergic, but utterly fascinated by them!
I wanted to make some pillows for our family room couch and I didn't want to do pumpkins or bats.
I thought about cats and instantly remembered my good friend Janda's mini she made for a swap a couple years ago.
Super cool, right?
Janda doesn't have a blog, so Kristi Schnitzel and Boo's offered to write a tutorial for her.
Her finish is a bit different than the original with fabric placement, but the pattern design is the same.
I copied Janda's radiating square quilting and just love it.
I attempted to start with them closer together and have the space gradually wider towards the edge.
I'm not sure if it worked, but I gave it try!
The solid cat faces were begging for some embroidery.
I had some leftover witch fabric from my Monster Bash Quilt to use for the hidden zipper backings.
And I couldn't resist the dotted fabric for the binding.
The background fabric I used was certainly a bit more busier than I normally like to use, but I felt like it went with out drastically traditional family room furniture.
Measures: 20" square
Pattern: Catstar block by Janda Wilden
Fabrics: Various Halloween fabrics by Moda, Riley Blake and scraps from stash
Quilted: Radiating Squares on Babylock Emore
I keep telling myself I'm done making Halloween quilts and pillows....but who am I kidding??
