Purrfect for Cat Lovers Quilt

Created By Winnie

Winnie treated us to a photo of her cat-themed quilt, and yep, it's purr-fect!

She writes, "It's a flannel rag quilt with a fun cat theme. Carole, an email friend who I got connected with through Embroidery Library, sent me the colorful cat flannel a few years ago. I would take it with me every now and then when I went to the fabric store. I could never seem to find flannels to match. But, my persistence paid off, because a couple of month ago, I found the perfect flannels. This past week was the time to create. The result is a soft, cuddly flannel rag quilt measuring 50 square. A great size for a child's snuggle quilt."

Those fabrics are excellent, Winnie! She adds, "I wanted the designs to be bright and colorful to co-ordinate with the fabric. I added some wording and extra paw prints here and there and also part of the cat track border. I embroidered my blocks with the three layers using the Bramble quilt square (single run) on the large blocks and the small bramble quilt block on the small blocks. I am so pleased with this project. A gift to tuck away for giving when the time is right."

Winnie's quilts are legendary, and she wrote up instructions for making flannel rag quilts so that everyone could try. Thank you, Winnie, for sending the photos. It's always a joy to see your work!
