I love black cats! I grew up with two of them (Nasty and Gandalf) but I didn’t include any in the Cat Quilt pattern because it’s tricky to do the eyes. All the cats in the quilt had simple oval eyes. Having the eyes match made all the wildly different cats look like they went together, but they wouldn’t have shown up on black faces, so I didn’t include any. I also didn’t use any dark grey or brown for the same reason.
So especially for Halloween I created this spooky black cat applique – a single block applique pattern – with huge luminous green eyes. I love her! And the pattern is the same size as the blocks in the Cat Quilt so you can mix and match if you like. 🙂
The pattern also includes instructions for a hanging sleeve so you can make it into a Halloween wall decoration. It’s easy!
