Quilt Qwazy (Cat Lady) Queen

So, I happen to have six cats…. and a husband, so I always tell my husband that we’re the Crazy Cat Couple. With so many felines in my life they show up a lot in my pictures and they sneak both into and onto my quilts. Below is a selection of the kitties that have been in and on my quilts over the last few years.

I’m sure if I had a tiara, it would have a few threads and cat hairs hanging from it! Now, I was hoping to be witty and funny in this post but I’m tapping this out in LAX as I get ready to fly to Melborne (the one in Australia) and my swipe is getting about every third word wrong! In addition, I’m worried about the whole time-change-date-line thing so I’m going to go ahead and post early…. just in case!

Be sure to visit the other hoppers and see what they’re crazy about! And thanks to Marian from Seams to be Sew for her amazing “cat- herding” talents!

Also, there’s an awesome giveaway from the Fat Quarter Shop! Two $35 gift certificates! Enter here.

Happy quilting,

    Very adorable pics. The kitties on the bookshelf quilt is one I’d like to make.

  2. LOLOLOLOL … Hope you’re having fun in Australia.. you know I was thinking it’s a day ahead there, when you come home, it will be hard to go back in time.. LOL What did you do with all those cats while you’re away? It’s a good thing my Boo was in her bed laying under her blanket if she’d seen those cats she would have been barking up a storm. I love all your projects, but the Naughty Dog totally made me laugh, I got it even without having the text in the quilt, but it is such a cool project. Thank you so much for participating in QQQ 2019 Beth. I love it when you join each year.

  3. Enjoy your trip! Australia is my dream destination

  4. Ms Sam Nicholson

  9. Love the cat quilts and the cats.

  10. Almost makes me wish I had a cat!

  11. Have a great time in Melbourne. What sweet, sweet photos. My mom was considered a zoo manager. We lived on a farm with a lot of animals. We always had at least four cats in the house and a few in the barn. I don’t know how she did it but her whole live she had four cats in the house and a few in the barn. She shared her love of animals to the five of us kids. And so that love continues on in the next two generations. Love your quilts. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I love kitties! I am so envious of your trip to Australia. They have so many wonderful craftspeople. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Safe travels. Looks like so much fun.

  14. Tami Von Zalez

  18. love your pictures , we have dogs

  19. Love your pictures. Your cats seem to be happy and relaxed!

  20. We also enjoy our cat friends!

  21. It’s a toss up…do we love the quilts or the kitties more??? I don’t think any of us can decide. Have a fabulous trip!

  22. We use to have 2 cats when our children were growing up. They lived to an old age, but I can’t replace them because of too many people in our family having allergies to cats.

  23. I’m a cat person too. I miss my cats. Thank you!

  24. Have fun on your trip.

  25. If one of my projects didn’t get inspected by my cat…I’d probably throw it OUT!!! ADORABLE companions…oh the adventures. I have one very demanding, smart, makes me laugh DAILY mixed Siamese cat named Mary Alyce…If I had just one more of her, I’d be in the nut house, seriously! Thanks for sharing!

  26. Carolyn Montgomery

    love the black cats on and in the mini quilt.

  27. Hello! I wish you safe travels to Australia! I love all the pictures you shared of your kitties. My favorite is that very last one, which is brown striped with white boots. He looks like he is really enjoying that quilt very much. Enjoy your trip! ~smile~ Roseanne

  28. Cute cats. Cats can work their way into our lives!

  29. I do not have cats, I have birds.
    It does seem to be, that a lot of quilters have cats.

  30. Cute little quilt! Enjoy your trip and safe travels!

  31. We have three cats and they are quite entertaining.

  32. Your kitties and quilts are all wonderful. Have a blast in Australia…wonderful country!!!

  33. Cute cats and quilts! Enjoy Australia!

  34. Haha happy pictures ty for sharing… happyness04431@yahoo.com

  35. Cute kitties and quilts. My hubby and I are crazy cat lovers. He had just adopted a kitten when I met him. I looked at him with the kitten in his man cave apartment and knew he was the one. We have three cats who are our babies now that the kids have grown and moved away. May your travels be safe and happy … 🙂 Pat

  36. Have fun on the trip and love those cats!

  37. Unfortunately I am seriously allergic to cats & most dogs so miss out!

  38. I too love cats and have had 5 cats. Right now I have one but will be moving from OK to IL and hopefully will have more cats after I move. I love your kitties and you cat projects. Thank you for the wonderful peek into your beautiful cat quilts and projects.

  40. Cute pictures of the kitties.

  41. Hope you have an easy trip and fun time.

  42. Love all the cat quilts! We are a five-cat-family. (5 dogs, too.) The difference is, we have a mom cat and her four kids and they all look exactly alike; at least in your pictures you have a nice variety!

  43. Love the kitties! I have 9 around here. Enjoy your trip!

  44. Love all the cats I have had in my life.

  45. I love cats too, but I don’t love how they “help” you with your quilting. Thanks!

  46. Adorable kitty! Cute minis.

  47. Your cats are adorable! I have two but they have to stay outside because I’m very allergic unfortunately.

  48. Love cats … Kittens even more … Envy your travels

  49. We have had fixed and feed a feral colony of about 25 cats in our backyard. We never meant to have so many cats, but they live outside and seem to enjoy our yard/garden.

  50. My husband and I love cats too. We enjoyed looking at the cats and the quilts.

  51. I love kitties too. I have one that always wants to help and isn’t very helpful.

  52. Thank you for sharing your lovely pictures

  53. Your kitties are delightful. I also have furry quilt inspectors!

  54. Your cats certainly love your quilts and you obviously love them back! They are lucky to live together in a house full of love and creativity! Have fun in Melbourne! duchick at gmail dot com

  55. You’ve had a lot of cats through the years. I’ve made those cat blocks on your book shelf quilt. They sewed together very quickly. Enjoy Australia!

  56. I have one cat that demands ALL my attention. Sometimes it is difficult to sit down and sew with a massive, ball of fur in my lap.

  57. I’ve been seeing a lot of bookshelf quilts lately. I wish I had one for my full size bed but to be honest I don’t trust Lily the cat not to pee on it as she’s done on 3 of my quilts so I guess I’ll need to wait a few years or ten before I attempt it. Thanks for sharing so many of your quilts.

  58. I hope you enjoy your trip as much as I enjoyed the “library” of photos of cats and quilts.
    Carol Andrews

  59. Wow, that’s a lot of fun kitty quilts! Hope you’re having a great trip!

  60. Seems like the cats are enjoying the quilts as much as I did looking at them. Thank you for sharing.

  61. Thanks for sharing. We love cats too. If fact here we got married we agreed to aways have cats since we both grew up with nothing else. We currently have 3, 2 were litter mates but in size+coloring no one believes us. Since my boys left, + hubs was traveling a lot at that time, we got our 1st dog. We are on dog#2 now but the first thing they learn from the cats is always was your paws when you come back into the house. Even the Border Collie (B.C.)listened. I don’t know how they did it, I asked all my friends with dogs if this is normal for dogs, they thought I was weird asking such a silly question stating dogs don’t care, I said mine does, so somehow the cats have taught 2 dogs secretly to do certain cat behaviors. Our B.C. could also speak to each of them in a low talking voice…the cat always responded, a convo ensued. We loved listening to them. Cats do do the craziest things! quiltyladyrr-at-gmail-dot-com.

    What a wonderful world of quilts and cats you live in! I especially like the library bookshelf quilt. It is on my to do list and speedily approaching the top of the list. Thanks for sharing.
