The Making of Catnap

I met Lee Heinrich, one of the authors of Vintage Quilt Revival, at The MQG Portland Sewdown.  I loved the class she taught, so I bought the book.  Then one day I saw Lizzy House’s Catnap fabric line and knew I had to make something from it for my sister-in-law, Sherri.  Sherri had been sending me funny photos of “cat quilts.”  I am not one to love the literal quilts, so I used the double Z block pattern to illuminate the beautiful Catnap fabric.
