    Hi Everyone,
    I am pretty darn pleased with this top so far. So, I thought I would share it here with you. It still has the borders to go and the quilting. See what you think..... Oh it is on a blue design wall and is 56 x 56.

    Thanks girls! :D :D
    I had to re-work the pattern dodie sent me. But, as long as I have a picture, I am able to do that. The finished blocks are seven inches. And the top and bottom arrows were added because I didn't like it stopping without them. And I eliminated four animals from the original design.
    I don't have EQ so I took two copies of the pattern picture and cut one up and pasted the sections on to the second copy so I could see what it would look like changed to this way before I cut into the fabric. I also changed the block size, because the animals were too cramped at the size the pattern gave.

    Hubby is thrilled! I would have never believed that he would care about a quilt. Strange .... :shock:

    :oops: Gee thanks girls! I don't know if you remember, but I found the fabric for this in a second hand store. All but the grey was there. Well the line is long since out of print, so looking for the grey was a nightmare. I found this grey at Windy Moon Quilts, a fabric by marcus brothers. I am so glad the other fabric was unavailable. I love that print with it.
