Free cat quilt patterns are a popular choice for quilters. Most of the patterns below use cat printed fabrics in their quilts.
When you are next browsing in your quilt shop check out their cat fabric as there appears to always be a good range of fabrics with cats on them. Have fun choosing your fabric and pattern when making your next cat quilt!

You will have noticed that most of the above patterns involve stunning yet simple designs using squares and rectangles. The key is to find a cat fabric you love and then look at what you can do. The 'Cat Amore' quilt has each individual cat picture set in a border and if you look closely you will notice that some of these borders are of varying thickness. One of the best pieces of advice I received from an experienced quilter was that 'there is no right or wrong way in quilting just personal choice!'
I hope the above free cat quilt patterns have inspired you to make your own cat quilt using your favorite cat fabric.
