PatchKats BOM – 2015 BOM

 patchkats final

This design has special meaning because it’s named  after my dear friend Susan who passed away in 2014.  A prolific quilter and cat lover, her email/online name was “PatchKat.”  She saw the earlier versions and loved it and always told me I needed to finish the design.  And so I have and will be sharing it in her honor and memory with you.  

Updated 12/2/15: — this pattern is no longer available for free thru my blog.  It will be available for purchase only through Electric Quilt sometime in the future but you will need to have EQ software in order to use it.

For those who stitched along on this project this year (or who are still stitching – as I am) I hope you enjoy your quilt when it is finished.   Please share photos in my Flickr group so we can all see your version of it.

  1. Thanks so much for all the creativity and effort you put into this, and for the reminder to be sure we had all the parts downloaded. You think of everything!

  2. Thank you I really enjoy your patterns. I really appreciate you making all installments available So i can check and make sure I did not miss any. I know it is a lot of work.

  3. Thank you very much for the alert to the end of the Patchkats. I had planned to do this project with you but my body had other plans and I ended up with life saving emergency surgery. So thank you again. I enjoy your reports on the weather. It is an interesting difference since I live 6 houses from the Texas Gulf of Mexico. I am also a paralegal. Good luck to you and have a very Merry Christmas.

  4. Thank You for this quilt pattern. This Christmas I put together 1/2 your dog blocks into a small quilt for a Children’s Home. Everybody just loves it. Thank you for your generosity. I will make a smaller version quilt of these cats for them too. I have to be consertive about the size I make because of the cost so I keep them to under 45″ X 63. The 12 blocks will make 2 quilts. I had two of your big star quilts that I gave them last year. They were wonderful

  5. Thank you! I missed a month a while back and was so disappointed that I wasn’t going to be able to finish. I appreciate the chance to complete it. Thanks again!

  6. Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern!! I am going back to the picture from the beginning and all of my cats will have a different block in them. Can’t wait to see it done!!!!

  7. I haven’t even started yet. Thinking of a cat with a different colored tail, I though about extending or incorporating the colors in the nine patch into the tail.

  8. You are ahead of me as I am currently, and valiantly, trying to finish 2 quilts for my guild’s quilt show in November. I have to get more thread for one and don’t know if I’ll be able to get it.

    • FINALLY!!!!! I’m ahead of you. LOL (we won’t speak of Knitter’s Gifts or DPPAS or…..all those others I haven’t finished yet) But I am determined to get this top done.

  10. Thank you for this pattern~ We had two black cats who were part of our family for over 20 years! This will be a fitting tribute. One was a boy, named Herman, and his sister was named Twidgett. I’m thinking of making the 9 patches in blues and pinks.
    Love this pattern and thank you for your kind generosity!

  11. OMG my computer crashed and I lost ALL of the previous parts. 😦 I was getting ready to cut up the April ones when this happened….Looks like I am out now 😦

    • Oh thank you thank you thank you android! I had checked this out on my phone and it is still there!!!! Bring on the kitty kats!!!

  12. Thanks so much for the new instructions. I am going to love making this quilt for a young “orphan homed” girl. Cathryn

  13. Thanks for the revisions! I still haven’t decided on my colors for my friend and this will save me one huge headache.

  14. Just wanted to say thank you for sharing this pattern. I just got out of the hospital and have learned that my chances of living longer than the next two years aren’t great but when I saw this I knew I had to made it for my sister. She loves cats and will be taking care of my two after I’m gone so I am excited to start working on this quilt. Rina

  15. Thank you for sharing this pattern. I am collecting it for my daughter. She wants to make it when she finishes school this summer.

  16. Hi I was on Pat’s Blog and saw this wonderfully sweet quilt and I said I just can’t tackle another big quilt right now but I wondered if a wall hanging could be done. I didn’t see the measurements for it? I will go look at pattern and maybe will change my mind.

  17. i have been downloading your monthly blocks and mystery’s for along time, and I think your Ideas are the greatest! I love the way you explain the steps and help when we need it. I also think it is great that you explain your ideas before we even get to the project. Keep going girl, I am a fan! Donna

  18. Hooray!! I have the March installment ~ this is going to be so much fun! I have never sewn along with a group before, so it feels like I belong to a guild now, kind of special too, with it being a Kitty quilt ~ thank you so much for making this a free pattern

  19. Hooray! The wait for this start is over. This quilt will be going to a co-worker friend of mine. I just have to decide what colors to use so she will not only like the quilt, but will fall in love with it.

  20. ok, so magic. Somehow I got onto the correct page that had the right side buttons. Thank you so much. Cute pattern.

  21. I will definitely need to make this—in memory of our wonderful Susan. The BOM (or swap–don’t remember which) she did had a sort of tensellating cat pattern—have that quilt somewhere waiting to be quilted. I NEED TO MAKE THIS ONE! Love the pattern Denise!

    • Thanks Marilyn — yes, I know I’ve quilted one or two projects using those swap block kitties but I think there’s still one or two more left to quilt. Considering I’m not a cat person myself, that’s a whole lot of kitties to have in my stash. 🙂

  22. What a nice thing to do in memory of Susan, she did love her cats for sure. Thank you for all the work you do in designing and offering your BOM’s.

  23. Thank you in anticipation for this great pattern. It is irresistible and I just have to make it. I love cats and nine patches and am most appreciative of you so generously sharing it with us all.

  24. ready..ready.ready. Do you think I’m anxious or what.thanks for sharing this special pattern with your friends and followers.

  25. I, of course, will make the larger size. How can I not? VBG I like the idea of inserting different 6″ blocks for the 9-patches so will proceed to Marcia Hohn’s site and look around. Wonder if she has a 6″ puss in the corner, lol!

    • Can’t remember if there was a puss in the corner but I do remember seeing Tellestating kats (that might not be the exact name) but it reminded me of all those kat block swaps Susan hosted. 😉

      • Yes, I saw that one. I think you were in the cat exchange when I joined the group. I regretted missing out on it once I figured out what was going on!

  26. So excited that this BOM is starting! Plan to make 2 wall hangings for my mother in law and my husband’s aunt. Both are cat lovers!

  27. What a wonderful way to remember a friend. Everyone who makes the quilt will know the story of how it became to be and will remember you and your friend. Can’t wait to get started.

  28. I love cats and this starts just in time to be a Birthday present to myself. Thank you and your Friend for this beautiful pattern + sew along.

  29. Such a beautiful design – and such a nice idea to remember a friend, you and all of us who will take part in this BOM will allways remember her.
    Wait for the beginning!

    • There of course will be a blog post when it starts and more information is posted but you need to either subscribe to my blog or check back to make sure you get the info.

  30. I want to sign up to participate in this one. I missed the dogs and for that I’m very sad because I love the way it looks and I wanted so much to get that extra one with the Santa Hat on. But I do understand your reasoning.

  31. Can hardly wait! Usually I see BOM quilts and they remind me of the person they should find a home with but this one speaks to me 🙂
