Caterday Quilts A Bit Early: August 9

On Caterday, which should be a Saturday, we like to highlight quilts made to celebrate cats and dogs and our other pet friends. Sometimes it’s our friends “helping” us quilt, or just taking advantage of our quilts for lounging. We hope you enjoy these, all from our readers.

Quilted by Roxanne Richardson, inspiration from a cat quilt on 24 Blocks – I tried to go back and find it, but no luck. Thank you to whoever posted it. Pattern is “Let Sleeping Cats Lie”by StoryQuilts.com” — Martha Plante

“Thisis a quilt I made when my husband and I spent our first winter in Florida and our daughter was staying at home in Massachusetts to watch our Cairn Terrier, Bailey. We’ve now decided to take her with us this fall and so I gave this quilt to my daughter… seemed like a fair tradeto me!” — Mary Deotte
