Cats on the Prowl Quilt Pattern

Original price was: $AUD 11.99.Current price is: $AUD 9.99.

Baby quilts are always popular.

There are so many adorable children’s prints around these days that I was inspired to design a baby quilt that would show off a large portion of that print yet still provide a bit of a sewing challenge.

Making this pattern would be a wonderful hand-made gift to a new mum..



This design alternates large strips of a cat print with pinwheels. Pinwheels require a certain amount of sewing accuracy.

When choosing fabric for this quilt, any type of print will work: animals, flowers, insects – whatever captures your imagination. For the pinwheel fabrics, you can use a variety from your stash as long as they are similar colours to provide consistency in the quilt. I’ve used two different light pink fabrics for my pinwheels.

Alternatively a bright feature fabric would work well with a variety of bright colours in the pinwheels.
