    Default Cats AFL Quilt

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Cathie, I am into quilting - self taught over about 10 years. My husband Keith is into woodworking on the Toymaking Section.

    I am making a Geelong Cats - AFL Quilt. I contacted the Geelong Football Club to ensure I was allowed to make a facsimile of their logo. They said it was OK - so long as it wasn't sold.

    We print out a logo off the internet and then Keith hand draws it up to scale by making up a grid pattern. This is enlarged to the size I want. This then becomes my pattern.

    I use wooden or cardboard letters as my wording templates - depending on size. I have cheated a bit by buying the whole alphabet letters from Bunnings on the smaller size.

    I use sheets to save on cost, but they must be minimum 250 thread count and must be cotton.

    I place vliesofix on the back of the material so you don't need pins. I machine sew - not hand sew.

    Will continue posting as I progress

    Bye Now

    Cathie

    Hi Cathy
    Great to hear about your quilting project. I belong to the Gold Coast Quilters Guild and from time to time members have made a football (rugby or AFL) quilt - mostly for male grandchildren! They are wonderful to see. Look forward to seeing your completed one.
    It shall be fun to check into this forum from time to time.
    Cheers
    Bronnie

    G'Day & welcome Cathie....
    Apologies for not giving you a "like" ;
    couldn't like the Geelong cats when I'm a Sydney Swans supporter....
    But I'll be looking forward to seeing the very talented quilters on the forum
    and the woodworkers who have to make displace holders for them.....
    Cheers, Peter

    I have done more on the quilt today. Used the cardboard templates I made to use for the CATS and GEELONG wording.

    Finished the Logo and then sewed onto the sheet that I mentioned previously.

    Now ready to quilt.

    That is coming along excellently Cathie; good work. It will be used as a throw for the lounge? or maybe taking to the footy!

    Finished my CATS quilt today
    It measures 154cm long by 106cm wide.
    Machine quilted.
    Added extra stripes for husband Keith's quilt so quite larger.

    Pity CATS didn't perform on the field today

    All the best

    All the Best
