So my pampered darlings have a thick, flannel-y place upon which to warm their little bones, I’ve made the following. The flannel is very thick, as is the batting. When I added the trim on the second one, I handquilted through velvet trim, two layers of fabric and heavy batting. My hand has finally stopped cramping LOL! They are both about 20 inches square.
The first was Shadow’s quilt, and used by her almost non-stop in the last year of her life. I haven’t bequeathed it yet to another cat; it’s draped in my workroom for now. 😉
The second is for Anabelle, just finished over the weekend. So far, it meets with her approval. She loves rubbing her paws against the velvet trim.
Saffi has her own, that she was adopted with, so just Macy and Pansy need one each now. 🙂
Yes, I do like the Shoo Fly block; why do you ask LOL?
Very cool. Mickey is a blanket sucker and would probably love for me to make one for him lol.
Wow…your kitties actually use them? And not your quilts, throws, jackets, pants….
LOL… I have not had a blanket sucker yet, but I’ll bet he’d find flannel right tasty. 😉
They’re more drawn to spaces than clothing; certain corners of the bed, back of the couch, my drawing table… LOL! So the quilts go to their favorite spots, respectively. Right now, Anabelle’s is on one side of table as it gets much sun, and she likes to help me bead there. Saffi’s is on top of the kitty jungle gym where she likes to hang out. 😉
