Cuddle Cat Quiltworks
Welcome! I am an independent quilt designer, blogger and avid quilter who sells original quilt patterns and handmade quilts.
From the Blog
- While designing my latest quilt pattern, I envisioned rick-rack trim on either end of the quilt. While rick-rack is usually sewn on as an adornment, I wanted to create rick-rack trim that was part of the piecing and blended in with the blocks. After some experimentation with triangle sizes, I came up with a charm square baby quilt pattern that uses a zig-zag design that blends with charm square blocks.
- It happens to all of us. Those periods of time when you just can't seem to get inspired to sew. This phenomenon is sometimes referred to as "losing your mojo" and it can be disconcerting for sure! There are as many causes as there are quilters, but common reasons include illness, fatigue, stress, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, depression, family issues or just needing a new focus. These dry spells of inspiration can signal a time when we need to re-group and re-evaluate so we can move forward.
- I love watercolor fabrics! When I see a new line, I envision all the quilts to be made using them. However, sometimes the fabrics are so pretty, you just don't want to cut them. Chickadee from Create Joy Project is one such fabric line. When I saw these gorgeous floral prints, I immediately said, "These fabrics are like works of art, they should be framed!" So that's exactly what I did, I framed them!
