Pets On Quilts Show Hosted by SewCalGal - My Entry


This is a cat quilt that I made using Christmas fabric and the cutest vintage cat fabric.   Moxie likes quilts.



She appears to be more particular about the design and structure than her housemate, who likes to create things on which even the cat can sleep or play.

I found the pattern for this cat block here http://www.sewvac1.com/Library/catquilt.htm

Visit SewCalGal to see all of the pet quilt entries.  You've got to love this kind of show.

God Bless and Enjoy!

You've got some lovely pics there, Joanna - and a wonderful quilt!

I find it VERY DIFFICULT to get a picture of Oliver looking like anything other than a black blob!

D'you know, the quilt is bigger than I though it was when you first showed it? They are Moxie-sized cats!

Patty said...

I love your quilt and it looks like Moxie likes it too!

wackywoman said...

It looks like Moxis is holding on to it as if it may get picked up and disappear. ;-) They can be funny that way, hey?

Какое интересное одеялко получилось.

QuiltSue said...

I agree with Hazel, the quilt is much bigger than I thought it was before. Moxie certainly seems to be enjoying it though.

Moxie is beautiful. Doesn't look like there is a spec of white. Right now I have two pure white cats, but I would always pick black cats. These two choose me. The quilt is wonderful, I love the fabrics you chose. Thanks for sharing with all of us.

I'd say your cat is quite intelligent, as it knows those are cats on those quilts!

The quilt is beautiful and your cat is so cute.

Brita said...

What a gorgeous assistant you have! Moxie, love the name. I remember as a kid (in Mass.) there was a drink called Moxie. I made a large quilt for my brother one year using this pattern, very scrappy. He had it across the back of the couch, whereupon his kitty sat on top of the couch, in the same position, as if to say, "Is this the right position?" He sent me a picture, and it was such fun!

Gladys said...

Moxie is beautiful... and so is the quilt!

Sand and Sunshine said...

Moxie, wow she certainly has her own bit of moxie and plenty of zip too!

SewCalGal said...

Too funny. Moxie looks like she is playing with the cat in the quilt. Moxie is such a cute cat and your quilt is lovely too. Thanks for sharing in the Pets on Quilts Show.

Moxies got great eyes!

Kelli said...

What a perfect quilt for your cutie to lounge on. :)

I really like those kitty kat blocks! Hard to photograph a totally black cat, huh? A sweetie, nevertheless!

Snoodles said...

Love, love the quilt, and Moxie, too!

Linda in Calif. said...

I really don't know which to look at Moxie or the quilt - they are both so pretty. I like the way you put those little square in a square in the border. It is a very nice detail. Moxie is beautiful. I bet he is just too much fun.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Oh my, what a cool quilt. And the picture is perfect!

The Vegetarian Hunter said...

Moxie is so beautiful, what a good helper, making sure no one takes the quilt from the floor!

Pat V. said...

Great job on the quilt. I can tell Moxie approves.

Melissa said...

Thank you for sharing your lovely kitty with me. My dogs will not allow me to have a kitty, so I do enjoy looking at photos of other folks kitty companions.

Janet said...

I love how Moxie is pointing the quilt out to us in some of the pictures. Great quilt and lovely cat.
