As every owner of a feline friend knows, when the sun sets, cats are just beginning the day. In a nocturnal celebration, appliquéd kitties frolic up and down the nine-patch “stairs” of this wall hanging, enjoying the glow of the crescent moon. Echo quilting helps create texture in the sky, and low-contrast fabrics mimic the shadows of night.

Stairway to Cat Heaven Quilt Pattern

Yes, I know it’s a quilt pattern, but it’s free and I’m into cats and think this is a great inspiration for an embroidery project. I love the cat silhouettes. Can you see them climbing a pants leg?

Or is that just me?
