Cat-I-Tude 2: Purr-Fect Together

The cats are back! Cat-I-Tude was so popular that Ann Lauer created Cat-I-Tude 2: Purr-Fect Together. These cat prints prove that two heads are better than one! 

Like the original collection, Cat-I-tude 2 features stylized cats that look like painted porcelain. Keep reading as Ann walks us through the collection. 

This collection starts with a panel of different sized blocks.
Yes. This time there's an 18" square in the middle, which is great for bags, jackets and pillows. The four blocks around it work for 8", 9" or 10" squares like the first collection. There are gold scrolls around the cats, which creates a really delicate texture in the background.

Tell us about the large cats.
These cats have realistic poses like the first collection, and I love the two cats snuggling together. They're dsigned to fit a 9" or 10" block. So with a 12" cut of fabric, you'll get three different cats. There are six cats total. 

Are there more cats in this collection?
Yes--in addition to the panel and large cats, there are prints in multiple sizes.These Sweetheart cats are more portrait-like--they're such sweet, snuggly faces.

That paisley is fantastic!
Thanks! It has a great black and white check look in it, which makes it really playful. The paisley shows up again in the stripe, which is perfect for fussy cutting.

Can you tell us about the palette? 
It includes deeper reds, blues, and greens, along with the purple. The coordinates come in different values. There's the gold-accented paisley, and the squares on point, which also shows up in the background of some of the cat prints. The lightest coordinate is just outlines of the squares on point.

Later this week, we'll be sharing quilts and projects using Ann's Cat-I-Tude 2 collection.
