As part of The Cat Quilt-Along, I will be posting my kitties one at a time as I make them. They won’t be quilted yet until the end when I put them all together.
My first three kitties will be with the purple fabric and I really liked Bizzilizzi’s comment that, being in the UK, purple always reminds her of royalty. She gave me some ‘royal’ name suggestions and I plan to use them all so special thanks go all the way across the vast Atlantic to her.
Meet George! He’s the fist of my 25 cats.
As a matter of curiosity and being a complete novice to patchwork and quilting, Bizzilizzi asked why cotton and flannel do not mix. I believe it has something to do with the shrinkage rate of each and that it is also a little more difficult to quilt through the flannel. If any quilters out there can pipe in and clarify this more then please do so by leaving a comment. I’m still going with the flannel backing because it is just softer and feels cozier.
