Cool Cat Cathedral Window Quilt

Cool Cat Quilt by Lori Lusk W

In December of 1999 my first book “Machine Stitched Cathedral Windows” was published. Every once in a while I get pictures of a quilt made using the book.

Lori Lusk created this beautiful quilt in 2007  just in time for Christmas. She used the technique from my book for the central part of the quilt. Using bright colors for the window frames. the panes use the cat fabric shown below and the cat paw print was used for the foundation. The fussy cut cats were used again in the border along with more of the bright solids. Lori had this to say:

Cool Cats Fabric“I entered the quilt in our quilt guild’s challenge and won the viewer’s choice, best use of color and best expressed theme (It’s a novel-tee).  It was a Christmas gift for my great-niece who was three at the time.  The back of the quilt is the cat paw print and had a matching pillowcase to put it in.”

This is a wonderful example that uses my technique with original design choices for the color placement and borders to make a Cathedral Window Quilt. What a great job, Lori!
