Scrappy Blue Saturday


Here are four of my blue cats for Scrappy Saturday - I have more to make
and some will be facing the other direction. I made a cot size cat quilt many years ago for a grandson and always intended making a larger one - so here's my chance!
Angela chooses a different colour each month which makes for super scrappy quilts.
I need to make 10 cats per month in the chosen colour so six more to be put together in dark/bright blues before the end of the month, in fact I am hoping they will all be sitting to be photographed by next Saturday.

The main part of the cat only needs a piece of fabric 6x8and1/2" which is easy to find in the scrap box and I had some decent size pieces of the black from an earlier project so I was happy, I love black with bright colours.

There are quite a lot of bloggers taking part so I'm linking up now with Angela at superscrappy who is organising The Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014 - just click on the button on my sidebar for more information.

For those who haven't seen our cat Daisy before here she is


Call in again next Saturday to see all 10 blue cats!

Love the cat blocks and with the black or dark navy background looks like they're ready to have a midnight romp.

Oh, I do like your cats. Do cats come in prides like lions? Whatever the name, they will make a great group by the end of the year.

I love cat blocks and I love YOUR cat blocks. I made some improv cat blocks last year during the rainbow challenge. You make me want to make more.

Love your modern take on the cat blocks.
The real cat looks very sweet to.

Oh my goodness...so pretty. I am having trouble with contrast in my blocks but even though your blocks have a dark background your scrap kitties are so vibrant.

I like your black background; it sets the cats off nicely. You've made a good start.

Your blue fabrics are luscious. The contrast so nicely with the black background.

It will look good with the cats facing both ways

Great cat blocks and Daisy is a beauty! Our 1st cat years ago was black... I love how sleek they look.
