Here Kitty Kitty Quilt Tutorial & Giveaway




"Kitty in the Cabin" Quilt Top Done!



I have been enjoying working with these soft and pretty fabrics

from  Clothworks.

Fabric Requirements


For the specific information on these fabrics visit


I bought my  fat quarter bundle fabrics at


where there are still some of these available.  
The half yard bundle would be more than enough to complete the top
and a pieced back,
except for the pink binding.

They are also available at


I have purchased from both of these shops and found them to be 
good people and places to shop online.


Cutting and Sewing

Please click on the links below for complete cutting
 and piecing instructions: 




Make One




Make 8


Block layout

Outre borders:


Cut two 2.5 inch strips of each 


Sew on sides as shown.

The top measures 41" square.


The  Y1418-73 Pink Kitty and Yarn Print  fussy cut for the log cabin centers
 is also planned for a regular 2.5" binding.


I bought a fat quarter bundle and a few extra half yards of fabric 
and will be making a pieced back 
and a special binding so finishing this quilt will be a few days away. 


I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial.

This free tutorial will stay up on my blog.

If you make your own version of this quilt I would love to see a picture.

    I have an old cat helper (16 years), and he is a little grumpy sometimes, but otherwise adorable.

  6. I follow you through email and I simply love the prints. I have had a cat before, but due to my children's allergies, I had to get rid of the cat. So it would be a nice fabric to make a quilt for myself.

  12. Love this quilt. Of course, all things kitty I love. And yes, I have a kitty helper, although she's more like a part of my body since she must be touching me at all times. I wanted another Ragdoll like my last one we lost back in December because they want to be near their owners, but wow, this one is something else. She is extremely attached to me just in the few months we've had her. She follows me everywhere and is so attached that when I am 'attempting' to cook supper, she ALWAYS is sitting/laying between my feet. Seriously! Between her being there in the way, and my 2 1/2 yr old Granddaughter hovering nearby it's a miracle I get anything cooked in my house. LOL
    But, even as much as I must constantly move her off my arm to do anything and move her so that I can move myself, I wouldn't get rid of her for anything. She's adorable and full of energy that makes us laugh at things she does.
