Pets on Quilts Post


Do I have a pet?  Yes.  Do I quilt?  Yes.  Can they be combined?  Um, maybe. 
Moxie's my black cat, and I have made a table runner with black cat silhouette blocks.  I used Kay Mackensie's applique templates from her book Easy Applique Blocks and just made my own design.  The background fabric is the cutest fabric with cats galore literally hanging around a sewing room.  I just love it.  It must be fun to have a menagerie of cats and dogs, although my one cat tends to rule here.



The critic.
The tough critic.
Is that a bad review or do you like it so much you are making it yours?

I also want to share the Lollipop Playground wall hanging I just completed, also a Kay Mackenzie design from her book Scrap-Applique Playground. I added the AccuQuilt Go! dog and that makes it appropriate for the Pets on Quilts show.
Enjoy the Pets on Quilts show.  Thank you to Snoodles of Lily Pad Quilting for hosting and working so hard to make this show happen.

I love your post! Beautiful kitty....I'm on my way back to look for your linky. If I don't see it, I'll try to email and let you know. You might have to try it again, I'm not sure. Thanks for joining our party!

Snoodles said...

(Hopping up and down) It's there! Yay!

Donna said...

Ms Cha Cha said Moxie must be a relative because the beautiful cat on the runner (and the real one) look amazingly just like she does. Love the runner!

Needled Mom said...

What a pretty kitty. I have always loved a black cat. Your quilts are beautiful too.

Agnes B Bullock said...

Silhouettes- what a great idea! Perfect when the model is black! Thanks for the idea!

My Sister Made Me Do It.... said...

The silhouettes are perfect for that fabric! The "Critic" really loves the quilts......he just wants to make you nervous......lol...the lollipop wallhanging is adorable.

I think Moxie loved the runner so much, and was trying to sneak off with it!

Gene Black said...

I think the critic approves. I know I do!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I have some of that cat print - now I know what to do with it - but I would have to have one tabby and one black kitty on mine. Yes, paws up - a definate approval.

Donna~~ said...

Although they say we are our own toughest critic, I'd say you have a pretty tough critic there in Moxie--though you must have passed approval! Like the little doggie you added to your quilt--gives it a spunky look!

Missy Shay said...

She's beautiful! I have that material also and sometimes feel like my cats cause that much trouble!

Dana Gaffney said...

I'm sure Moxie is claiming the runner, doesn't everything belong to the cat in the family?

Mina said...

I think she is giving it a thumbs up!

Loris said...

What a lovely quilt designs! Love the Lollipop Playground with the pooch addition. Nice work!

heather said...

I love the lollipop quilt.

Of course she needs to smoosh any cat interlopers on her quilts!

Marcia W. said...

I really like your silhouettes on the quilts - they mirror your pets.

SpartanBabe said...

I am pretty sure that is a stamp of approval. Lollipop is great!

Marianne said...

Cute cat fabric, I've never seen it before. And I love your little inspector.

Soggibottom said...

Moxie never had glasses on and went to fetch them that's all. I LOVE IT.... a whole house filled with pets, it can be hard work :-) But your never short of friends, especially at meal times :-) x x x

What a beautiful quilt and Moxie is adorable!

sarah said...

I love your quilt, and your cat. I recently bought a house and I am going to get a second kitty and I'm looking for a black kitty..Ilove black kitties! A few months ago my Mother and I were on a walk and found a sweet black kitten wandering around, no collar...my parents adopted and spayed her..she is such a love! http://www.flickr.com/photos/73024485@N07/7721006258/in/photostream

I like how you used the quilting cats fabric. I have that fabric but did not know what to do with it. Now I do.

Amanda said...

You have a beautiful cat too! And I'm sure that she is giving it a good review. :)
