Wrap Up Some Love

Adorable kitties and hearts? Yes please! I want to Wrap Up Some Love with these!

Who can resist sweet, soft kitties? They're known to be masters of love, and excel at curling their tails around your heart. Goodness knows, it's happened to me several times!

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and all of my heart table runners - Love Match, Heart to Heart, Sweetheart, and Love Abounds - decorate the dining and living rooms. But something's missing, the sofa is bare. It needs a heart themed lap quilt!

Though inspired by all the FREE heart patterns posted last month, I wanted something a bit different. Being a cat lover, I saw this cute line drawing,

which sent me down a road of how to construct it in fabric. After a few sketches on graph paper, sizing pieces to cut, and a lot of stitch 'n flip sewing, a cat/heart block was born. Oh! It happened again - a kitty wrapped around my heart!

With such easy construction, I made a few more kitties, having fun changing the cat and heart fabrics, and waited for the blocks to speak to me. No, they didn't purr or meow, but did give me a setting to work with. All the quilt needed were additional blocks to tie it all together.

Keeping in mind the strong diagonal element going on, the first blocks I made overpowered the cats with too much red. Changing the color placement made the re-worked blocks just right, adding the right amount of spark. I think of them as a combined hug and a kiss!

Add in additional background, and a simple heart pantograph, and these kitties are ready to Wrap Up Some Love!
