I work from home and will readily admit that I'm easily distracted some days. When I walk through the kitchen it's too easy to snack. Other times I'm distracted by laundry or other household things needing to be done. But . . . when I lay out quilt blocks on the living room floor they really call to me to "come play" and they become a loud distraction.
Here is my initial layout idea for the cat and flower blocks. Can you tell that the natural light is grey again today? The layout needs some tweaking but it gives me an idea of how it might work. On the right side of the second row, I put a flower block upside down where I want to place a bumble bee block. Maybe I'll make that bumble bee block later today.
There is another flower block in Lori Holt's books that is called Zinnia - just a slightly different flower shape. There is also a little bird block that looks like a bird standing on the ground. I'm thinking maybe I need to make 5 rows and scatter some Zinnias and maybe a bird or two among the other flowers and spread out the cats into 5 rows. That would produce a better shape and size for the quilt. I'm definitely having fun with this design process.
very cute....can't wait to see the whole thing!
This is so darling!
I love your layout! But I also think your idea of different flower blocks and a few bird blocks will make it even more cute!
I can see how the cat blocks would be a big distraction: they are darling. Love this layout
That is so cute!! And I can see why you want to keep working on it!
That is going to be very cute when finished.
Oh, Sara! I wasn't sure how I would like the cats with the flowers. Your quilt is going to be super cute!!!
I'm not sure about cats and birds together . . just kidding! In a QUILT that'd be perfect! I like odd numbers in design - 5 rows, and 3 motifs (cats, birds, flowers). Super neat!
I love where this kitty quilt is going!
I would love to make this quilt for my neighbor who will be 100 in February of 2020. Is there a pattern for the cats and flowers? Thank you so much for helping me make something special for a very special lady.
Do you have the pattern for this quilt? If so how can I get it?
I would also like to know the pattern name(s). Are they all Lori Holt?
Hi I would like to get the pattern to make it for my 4 yr old grand daughter. Thanks
To the Anonymous commenters - sorry but I have no way to contact you directly.
There is NO actual pattern for this. The blocks are ALL from Lori Holt’s books and I just put them together as I liked. Because Lori Holt gives instructions for both 6” and 12” blocks it’s very easy to mix and match them. Look for her Farm Girl Vintage, and Farm Girl Vintage 2 books.
