Tessellating Tabbies Quilt Pattern

Two kitties curled up together inspired Jinny to create this fun, tessellating pattern.  This trick to making this seemingly complex design of positive/negative tessellating cats is in the pattern design: you create square blocks that incorporate parts of a light and a dark kitty that join together to create the illusion.

The blocks can be entirely paper pieced and the blocks are then sewn together with straight seams.  There are no Y- or partial-seams to sew.  Careful attention to fabric placement is critical, though!

We are sorry, kits are not available.
