Hi my loves! If you are passionate about cats like we are, you can’t help but be enchanted by this quilt, Cats on Cats. That’s right, the entire quilt design is cats, as if it were several animals together. It may seem difficult to do, from the details of the kittens’ ears, but you will see that it is not that difficult. One of the most beautiful things about this quilt is the colors.
Don’t be afraid to take risks with combinations. Make cats of all colors, with different patterns. The variety of colors highlights the shape of the cats, the more different the colors that are close together, the more prominent the cat. New quilts are always a good option to use scraps of fabric left over from other projects.
Take the opportunity to use, even if it’s just for a cat. As they are all very colorful and different, it won’t look like this fabric wasn’t part of the quilt. When using very different colors in the same quilt, excess dye from some fabrics can stain other lighter fabrics. You can wash the fabrics before using them in the quilt, so some of the excess dye will be removed.
