|Detail of a group friendship quilt, from Cats on Quilts, p. 100|
One of my favorite quilts books is written by quilt historian Sandi Fox - Cats on Quilts, published in 2000 by Harry N. Abrams. It's full of details of quilts featuring appliqued or embroidered felines. It seems there a lot of overlap between cat-lovers and quilt makers. I know from experience that no cat can resist settling on a heap of piled up fabrics.
