I made this quilt in 2013 for a quilt guild challenge. The rules were that the size had to be 36 x 36, it had to have a basket on it and the basket had to have something in it. I immediately thought of my cat Tux and how he loves to settle into baskets. He doesn't mind if the basket has something in it already because that would only mean the bed would be softer for him. I imagined the basket with flowers, now falling over the edge with the heft of the cat on top of them. I found the perfect cat on a panel from Benartex fabrics and selected my colors based on that panel. I decided to name the quilt "Flower Bed."
