Pumpkat, Podcats and other Garden Patch quilts

Our fascination with cat quilts began last year, with a series called The Best of Cat Quilts.  Some fantastic new entries in the "Best Of" category have been accumulating in our inbox. Meanwhile, we checked into the latest developments in Helene Knott's Garden Patch Cats collection (there are now 18 different cats !)

Pumpkat, about 18 x 18", by Helene Knott at KittyStomp

A minimalist rendition of Pumpkat, below,  is available in a laser-cut quilt kit at Quilter's Paradise:

Pumpkat (above) and Podcats (below) are perennial favorites...

Each little quilt measures 18 x 18" and includes a recipe for the vegetable represented in the quilt. Here are several more designs in the series:  Catus Romanus (includes a recipe for Greek Salad Tonnato), Pepper Puss (includes a recipe for Southwestern Stuffed Peppers) and Stalker (Cream of Chicken and Winter Vegetable Soup).


And there is even a banana cat....

Helene Knott is a designer and teacher whose art quilts have received worldwide acclaim.  StoryQuilts carries Helene's Garden Patch Cats patterns, along with her Postcards from Japan.


  1. Considering all the cat-lovers out there in the quilting world, those will inspire a lot of quilters.


We love reading each and every comment... thanks for visiting our blog!
