Cat Mat #1 Complete!

 Cat Mat #1 for Butte Humane Society is complete! As I wrote about the other day, I've decided to help out the local humane society by making cat sized quilts (would they be cat lap quilts? I'm not sure) to go on the cat trees that they have in their catteries.

It took a whopping 45 minutes, start to finish, to make the one that Molly is so kindly modeling for us! They're super easy to make - scrap batting, probably a fat quarter of flannel for each side, and some leftover white flannel binding I'd made up for another project. I'm set to volunteer today, so I'll take it with and hopefully get the go-ahead to make a whole bunch.

I'm joined up with Lily's Quilt's Small Blog Meet-Up again today - welcome to everyone who's new! I love quilting, picking fabrics, saving money, reading books, and of course kittens (I have two, Molly and Wrench), and I occasionally write about home improvements, too.

Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. Nice to meet you Stephanie! I am visiting from Lily's...I am a dog lover, but I do love reading books. If you have any advice regarding picking fabrics (and mixing collections) I'd love to hear it. I can't wait to learn more about you!

  2. Hi there popping over from Lily's SBM! I have 3 cats and they love to lounge on quilts so a wee individual quilt would suit them to a tee! This is so kind of you to do this! Great to meet you. x

  3. Cute idea! At first it looked like your cat was playing the Wii Fit game LOL Then I read your post... sorry that was random. Super cute kitty btw. ;P

    I came over from the SBM too and I'm following you!
