    You must belong to a very nice congregation. Lovely quilt. Personally, I like the fabric and definitely see the harmony there. Leopard print...buy a FQ and put a little here and a little there and poof--there it is...leopard! ~

    Beautiful quilt.
    No way would I go buy fabric if I had plenty. I would tell her Mother that I don't buy leopard fabric and ask what other colors does she like. Amazing how much people will look a gift horse in the mouth. I have Sis-in-law ask me to make a quilt of certain colors. I gave her a comforter and two quilts I have yet to see. Will she get another? NO.

    Beautiful quilt. How nice of you to make quilts for the brides in your church. I would stick to the colors you suggested for the second quilt and perhaps adding a small quantity of leopard print to your pattern.

    It does feel like an antique quilt. What a lovely thing to do for the brides.

    Love this quilt. It seems very calming to me.
    As for the leopard.. I'd use just a little as an accent. Maybe adding black and bright pink. Just a thought....
