Those Crazy Cats

Posted on October 30, 2010 by sonjabarrie

I just did a workshop at one of my quilt guilds, Flying Geese. It was a short 3 hour lesson on how to make a quilt called Those Crazy Cats by Buggy Barn. I just thought it was so cool I took some photos to show you.  No this is NOT the one I made, that one isn't even close to being done but I just had to take the class. Trouble is I now have another UFO (UnFinished Object) screaming at me every time I get near my sewing machine.

So many projects, so little time……..

Just goes to show you, quilting ain't what it used to be!  Think of quilts and quilt guilds and you immediately think of a bunch of little old ladies sitting in a circle making a drab old fashioned quilt.  It might surprise you to know that there are women AND men who quilt, some quite famous guys and pretty young too, who make a lot of money doing it and woman of all ages as well.  Now if I could just make enough from quilting to pay for all my fabric stash I would be happy but I doubt anyone can make THAT much money!


June 2016 Update.  I notice (finally) that there are a number of comments asking about the pattern.  I should have said when I first posted this, the pattern came from a book by Buggy Barn:

That Crazy Thing We Do
8 Crazy Pieced Designs. Projects in this book include:
Crazy Cats
Crazy Canoes
X Marks the Spot
Briar Rose
Strings of Time

Price: $35.00 each

I found the above informaton above at (this is not an affiliate link).  I don't know how many they have but you could probably find the book on ebay as well.

    I was wondering if anyone had yet found a pattern or if someone with a good sweet heart for quilt would pass this great pattern on so it can be enjoyed by many. Thanks it looks like a great pattern.

    l was wondering if you still have a copy of the Those Crazy Cats quilt from Buggy Barn's That Crazy Thing We Do?  I know your post is from 2010, but since I've searched the Internet with no luck, I thought I would at least ask.  The quilt is terrific!  I would love to give it a try. 

    I do not have a website.  I happened to see the picture on Pinterest. 

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
