Materials List

  • ¼ yd. or 1 fat quarter each of 5 different red and 5 different green fabrics for cats
  • 2½ yds. light fabric for block backgrounds, inner border, and sashing
  • 2 yds. red-and-green print for outer border
  • 3¾ yds. for backing
  • ¾ yd. red print for binding
  • 59" x 74" piece of batting
  • *Yardage is based on 42"-wide fabric, with 40" of usable width after preshrinking.
  • ​*Borders are cut from the fabric length to avoid piecing; you will have excess fabric to add to your fabric collection. If you prefer no excess, purchase 1½ yards, cut strips across the fabric width, and piece the strips as needed.

Cutting

  1. Cut 30 cats, three each from 10 different fabrics.

  2. Cut the inner border and sashing pieces first, parallel to the selvages, and then cut cat background pieces from the remaining fabric.

Making the Blocks

Make 30 Cat blocks, 3 from each of the 10 cat fabrics. Make 15 right-facing and 15 le%-facing Cat blocks.

  1. Sew D to A; trim and press as shown to make body unit A/D.

  2. Sew C to background E; trim and press as shown.

  3. Sew background F to head B; trim and press as shown. Add a background G to the lower corner of B as shown.

  4. Sew each B/G/F head unit to the C/E background unit. Add the resulting unit to the A/D body unit.

Assembling the Quilt Top

  1. Referring to the quilt plan below, arrange and sew the Cat blocks together in 5 horizontal rows of 6 blocks each, with a 1½" x 11½" sashing strip between each pair of cats. Press all seams toward the sashing.

  2. Sew the rows together with 1½" x 44½" sashing strips between the rows. Press all seams toward the sashing.

  3. Sew the side inner borders to the quilt top and press the seams toward the borders. Add the top and bottom inner borders and press. For detailed instructions on adding borders, go to ShopMartingale.com/HowToQuilt.

  4. Add the side outer borders, followed by the top and bottom outer borders. Press all seams toward the inner border.

Finishing

For detailed instructions on making a quilt sandwich and binding the edges, go to ShopMartingale.com/HowToQuilt.

  1. Layer the quilt top with batting and backing, and then baste the layers together.

  2. Hand or machine quilt as desired.

  3. Bind the edges and add a label to the back if you desire.
