Fancy that! Another adorable quilt found in the Spring 2015 edition of Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts showcasing a Clothworks fabric collection. The Crafty Kitty quilt designed by textile artist, Alyssa Thomas, uses fabric from Alyssa’s fabric collection, Here Kitty Kitty for her company, Penguin & Fish released by Clothworks. With whimsical prints of kitties chasing balls of yarn, modern geometrics, polka dots, and stripes reminiscent of a tabby cat’s markings, the Here Kitty Kitty collection in its soft pastels is perfectly highlighted in this simple patchwork quilt!
But this is not your ordinary patchwork quilt. Designer Alyssa Thomas has added another layer of whimsy to this quilt! Here Kitty Kitty is brought to life with an adorable cat applique caught pawing a ball of yarn applied atop the patchwork squares in The Crafty Kitty quilt. Follow the instructions which can be downloaded for purchase here, and you’ll learn the stitch techniques to make this quilt the cat’s meow!
In the soft blues, pinks, greys, and yellows- this quilt would make an excellent baby quilt! And better yet, Here Kitty Kitty is made of 100% Organic Cotton, to please both the eco-friendly and the cat lovers of the world.
