😺 A Sunny Cat Quilt

Sunny, a member of my quilt guild, Dakota County Star Quilters, made this "I Spy" quilt using the "Quilted Jewel Template" and accompanying pattern. The template and a dozen + patterns are designed by Sandi Irish of Irish Chain, and a co-worker at Quilt Cove. 

Every diamond has a cat fabric! I quilted it with "Linda's Folk Garden" which has a 102" repeat across. That really adds variety to the quilting.

Sunny pieced together a great collection of cats for the back:

Including some panels and this dot-with-cats print:

I finished quilting this around 6 PM, when the lighting wasn't the best, and then brought it to quilt guild for Sunny. Fortunately I got some better photos with Sunny doing the holding!

And here Sunny is showing us the back.

Great job, Sunny! You can see this quilt close-up at our upcoming guild quilt show, February 13 through March 9, 2018.

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. Another fun quilt, with an interesting design that I haven't seen before! I need to put the quilt show on my calendar too!

  2. I love that pattern, the diamond shapes are very cool! I love that the backing is pieced too, it's like getting a double-sided quilt. It's beautiful!

  3. Oh my gosh! How darling is that?? You know I love cat quilts, and this one is the Cat's Pajamas! I'm sure she was thrilled with your quilting, too. Do you have several of your guild's members as your customers?

  4. What a fun design for an I Spy--and I love that it's all cats--so cute! Sunny did an awesome job and your quilting is lovely!

  5. I just love seeing quilts made in jewel tone fabrics in January. It just brightens up the gloomy weather in Winter. Again, the quilting is just lush.

  6. I am really impressed with how many cats were able to fit into this quilt, both front and back. Great way to use the design and the fabric.

  7. Great pattern to use for I spy quilt. So many cats.

  8. Stunning quilt and quilting! So eye catching!
