Smilla’s quilted cat blanket

Quilted cat blanket – because all cats need one! Right?

Smilla's blanket While I made a couple of log cabin pillows this autumn I started to add the scraps and uncut pieces together at random. When I had two big pieces I sewed them together and made quilt for my cat Smilla.

I wanted to create a worn look with a bit of romance to it. I only used pale colours and quilted it with brighter threads in red and pink. I’ve quilted it both by hand and by using the machine. I’ve also embroidered her name (Smilla) and I think it turned out very cute. It fits her, and as you can see below she likes it! :-)

Thanks for looking!

    Awww she looks really pleased with the quilt. I don’t think I’ve commented here before, so, hello!

  7. Adorable! Both, Smilla and her blanket, great job! I’m thinking about making some high sided fabric&wool basket for my kitty, she seems to get cold lately.

    Gud va s?t hon ?r! Fullst?ndigt underbar! Hon ser dessutom lite mer kattunge-aktig ut p? de h?r bilderna ?n de jag sett tidigare, gulligt! Och en kattfilt ?r v?ldigt bra att ha, speciellt om de ?r lite l?ngh?riga och tenderar att l?gga de d?r h?ren precis ?verallt…

    I just wanted to tell you that this post made me smile. I LOVE Smilla’s blanket! I noticed you have some written text in there, did you write on the fabric yourself, or happen to find it that way? You’ve inspired me to make a quilt for my cat Marvin. He loves quilts, and it’s about time he had his own : )

    I like your blog. My cat is called Smilla too, I thought she was unique. She is a pretty silver tabby. Your cat is lovely too. Did you name her after Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow?
