Catryoshkas and Cats & Birds quilts

By May 29, 2018Quilts

Hi folks!

I have finally finished two quilts made from two of my patterns – Cat Silhouette and Birdie! This blog post is basically a continuation of one of my previous posts where I introduce the patterns.

First finished quilt is Catryoshkas:

I have five cats and I decided to quilt each of them differently. First two blocks ( from left to right) are quilted with walking foot. Last three block are quilted with free motion foot.

I like improv  scrappy backing as it’s a great scrap/stash buster!

I also used a new for me binding method that is called No Binding Binding or Faced Binding. Check a wonderful tutorial by Victoria Getenbach!

Second finished quilt is Cats & Birds. I also jokingly call it Cats and their dinner or Birds and their victims 🙂

Here I used also both free motion  and walking feet for quilting, but mostly free motion foot 🙂

Even more scrappy improv backing here! It’s sort of double-sided quilt.

And again No Binding Binding or Faced Binding. However I made binding strips more narrow here compared to my previous Catryoshkas quilt, 1.5″ instead of 2″. I think I like it this way more.

That’s it for now.

Thanks for scrolling/reading till the end 🙂

See ya!
