Jasmine Kitty Quilt

cat pet portrait quilt - Jasmine Kitty by Angela Bowman

"Jasmine Kitty" quilt, 24" x 24", made in December 2019.

This is a quilt I designed from a photo of our pet Jasmine, the sweetest cat ever. Aren't her eyes cartoonishly beautiful? She's a Russian Blue, and the most affectionate cat we've ever had.

I had a lot of fun creating the digital illustration, getting artistic with the colors.

I used 18 solid fabrics, all Kona Cotton Solids from Sewfinity.

Some of the blocks are really intricate, like these whiskers blocks.

I peeled off the back paper for a couple hours. A bit tedious, but so worth it to get this intricate design.

My favorite part? Her lovey eyes.

This quilt is amazing. I wish that I could design one like this for myself. My cat is a part of my family and I would love to make one of these!
