Crazy Cats Paper Pieced Quilt Pattern

Crazy Cats Quilt

I have been designing dog blocks for a few months, so FINALLY I have something to offer to all of you cat lovers! The Crazy Cats Paper Pieced Quilt has 12 expressive cats. My challenge was to create a quilt using all secondary colors; orange, green, and violet. As an art teacher, I always like to use color families successfully. The Crazy Cats  Quilt pops with fun color, but could easily be done in neutral tones, too.

Here are 3 of my favorites. I lucked out and found the perfect cream background fabric with tiny orange, green, and violet dots.

Here’s the easiest block: This is an easy to construct quilt , and would be great for beginning paper piecers.

The pattern is available on Etsy and Craftsy.
