Raining Cats and Dogs

"Friday Feature Matinee - Raining Cats and Dogs"

This weeks Friday Feature Matinee is all about our furry friends who help us on our quilting journey! Last Sunday was “National Love Your Pet Day”. You can check out our “Friends of Country Traditions” Facebook Group to see a fun thread of our Furry Friends helping create a project or enjoying the finished project! And if you haven’t posted a picture of your furry friend yet please do! But, to start out here are some photos of our CT teams’ furry helpers!


Benartex has a new line out that fits “purr”-fect with this week’s theme called “Raining Cats and dogs” designed by Terry Runyan. Terry’s modern kitties and pups are brought to life with the designer’s whimsical illustration style combined with geometric patterns and playful shapes. Mix the fun focal squares and unique border stripe for the perfect pet project!


With purchase of fabric from this collection you can get the free pattern “Pets on Parade” (50” x 59”)

If you are in need of a fast finish quilt pick up Windham Fabrics “Animal ABC’s Super Panel” This fun panel combines the alphabet with matching animals.  The panel alone finishes 47” x 70”, just add some borders and you easily have a twin-size quilt!


This is the last week of National Embroidery Month and it is the perfect opportunity to feature our friend Angie Steveson of Lunch Box Quilts. Angie has fun playful style to her embroidery designs. One of our personal favorites is “Cat’s Meow”. Create kitties of all shapes and sizes using your stash and Angie’s step-by-step instruction for Embroidered Applique!
