When I was first bitten by the quilting bug, I wanted to design a quilt for my daughter.
My daughter, Erin, loves cats. Especially her cat, Fluffy. And she loves to read. She especially
loves to read about cats. Her love is what inspired me to make my first
quilt - the Krazy Katz quilt.
I designed the quilt to have a
bookshelf surrounded by cats - featuring Erin's real life cat - Fluffy.
He is the orange and white one. Erin saw my sketch and drew a little
mouse on the shelf next to the sleepy kitty.
This was my
first attempt at making a full size quilt. And I've been hooked ever since!
Tell me about your first quilt. What inspired you to get started?
