THANK YOU ALL for giving me the info and fortitude to go ahead and just 'quilt it'!!!!!!
Did not turn out too bad---I know a lot of people could and would have done some spectacular quilting on this--but I am pleased that it is DONE!!!
The buttons (eyes) I thought was going to take a year and a day to put on......turns out my machine HAS a 'button sewing on foot and stitch'!!!!!! Went sort of quickly---after going thru all my buttons!!!
The pattern is from THE RED BOOT QUILT COMPANY http://www.redbootquilts.com/catnip.html I just love her quilts!!! Going to start on "Ruby" next!!!!
