Hi there, it’s Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl and I’m getting my “crazy cat lady” on today!!!I am so totally smitten with the Woof Woof Meow fabric line from Moda! I knew I wanted a fun throw quilt using all the cat fabrics from this fabric line. Grab your cat and let’s get sewing!!
You will love how easy this quilt comes together and I love the scrappy feel it has! It’s the purrrrrfect size for you and your fur baby to cuddle with!!
I choose to use HeatnBond Featherlite for the applique because the cat head appliqué pieces are larger and I didn’t want to add bulk to the quilt. I love this weight because you can hardly tell it’s there.
You can download the cat head pattern, 2 per sheet by clicking HERE. Put the HeatnBond EZ Print Featherlite sheets in your printer and no tracing needed!!
Scraps and Cats Quilt by Amanda Niederhauser
Finished Quilt 60″ x 70″
Block Size 10″
All seams 1/4″
Scraps and Cat Quilt Supplies:
HeatnBond EZ Print Featherlite Adhesive Sheets
3 yard solid white/cream
assortment of 10 or more fat quarters, lights and darks – Woof Woof Meow line
For the cat head block cut (21) 10 1/2″ squares from the solid white fabric.
Scraps and Cats Quilt Instructions:
Once you’ve got the pattern, heat set it to the wrong side of the cat head. Cut around it and fuse to the 10 1/2″ solid blocks. Then sew around each cat head 2 times with dark thread, I used navy.
Make 21 cat head blocks
For the chain blocks, cut a variety of fabrics (for a scrappy look) into 2 1/2″ squares. You need:
(84) white low volume print 2 1/2″ squares (I used the low volume prints that were in the fat quarter bundle) for the 9-patch
(189) dark print 2 1/2″ squares
(84) solid white 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangles
I used navy just to show color, mix up all the different fabrics for a scrappy look!!!
Sew the 9-patch unit together.
Then add the borders by sewing a rectangle to each side and pressing. Sew the corner squares to the ends of the remaining 2 rectangles. Press. Sew on to the top and bottom of the 9-patch unit. Press. Make 21 blocks.
Lay out blocks in 6 blocks across by 7 blocks down. Sew each block together in rows, press toward the cat heads. Sew the rows together, matching seam intersections. Press.
