Cats on Parade

I've known Ann Lauer of Grizzly Gulch Gallery for about 10 years, and when she asked if I was interested in designing a quilt featuring her Cat-I-Tude fabric collection with Benartex, I happily said yes! And then, even better, the quilt was selected to go in a magazine!
Cats on Parade is featured in the Fall 2018 issue of Quilter's World.

designed by Lisa Swenson Ruble 
and machine quilted by Diane Oakes
The whole quilt: 

And just for fun, here's what it looks like with the white panel and white background:

I created this design more than a year ago and had been waiting for the right fabrics to make it work. When I saw the cat block panel, I knew I'd found it! 

After I assembled this quilt, I realized that I have a "thing" for woven quilt designs. I like the illusion of fabric strips being intertwined, and I've done it several times before.
