Sue Tucker here, CFO of Studio 180 Design. You don’t hear from me often, but today I’m here with a special project, just for you! I hope you’re totally inspired from a week of seeing quilts in our beautiful Exuberance fabric line with Island Batik. I know I am, and we are all thrilled with the creativity our designers have shown with their fabulous quilt creations. Today, with this P.S., we are offering you a different kind of project.
Cats and quilters just go together. They get in our way, redesign our quilts, knock things off our work tables, and demand our attention when we want to concentrate on our quilting. Adorable little monsters! So I’ve created this quick and useful item for those loveable balls of fluff. It's not quite finished in the photo below but you can tell he is already intrigued.
What is this mom?

Given how much they love their cuddly spaces, I thought it might be fun to try to make one myself. I knew what I wanted, but looked all over the internet and couldn’t find a pattern that was quite what I was looking for. So, I thought, I know what I want so why don’t I just figure it out! So here is the end result, and it’s even fat quarter friendly with simple construction. There are a couple of tricky bits, but not to fear, the download includes things to expect and my suggestions for how to address them. Here it is just for you, in Exuberance, the download for Nino’s Favorite Cat Cave: https://bit.ly/NinosCatCave
This is purrrrrfect!
You can't see me!
We really hope your feline friends enjoy their new caves, and are looking forward to seeing your versions on FB and Instagram. We don’t want to miss a single one, so please use the hashtag: #S180NinosFavoriteCatCave
At Studio 180 Design we create tools that help you make many of quilting’s common units and blocks. Each tool comes with a full set of instructions that show you how to make the particular unit that tool is designed for and give the option for multiple sizes.
