    I will try to get pics of the lap quilt that I finished with this pattern (top completed during a 5 hour class).... in the mean time, I want to share with you the first "real" quilt I ever finished. It is a Queen-size that I made for my In-Laws. It turns out that they bought a mailbox cover with almost exactly the same wolf pattern on it the day before I gave them the quilt! :wink:

    BTW... the quilt covering the couch (you can see it on the left) is one of those "hand made" specials....nice fabrics, but it is falling apart! Good thing I only paid $15 for it at Walmart!!

    On the right, you can barely see a stack of lap quilts that I tied draped over my quilting frames (they are finished, but I don't count them as "true quilts").

    I love this quilt! I love wolves also. Maybe I will do something for myself like it. Great job.
