So, remember the Cat Quilt and the story about getting all the cat fabric...well, I actually had two special cat-loving people in mind! Immediately upon seeing this book tote pattern from City House Studio, I knew I had to make one for my wonderful, library going, cat-loving mother-in-law! Yes, the same lady who was one of my inspirations for adventuring into this quilting thing!
|Cat book titles...even some that we wish were books!|
I had so much fun making this bag! Great pattern, easy to follow. This was my first attempt at paper piecing...slow but rewarding! The cat fabric makes me smile...even for a dog person! (More on this in my next post!)
PS I have learned in my first year of quilting that a little fabric can go a LONG way. I am thankful that I no longer have to worry about building a respectable fabric stash! What should I do with the remaining adorable cat fabric?
