    Ok, I fell in love with the flower blocks that Conblonde did.
    I found this....
    http://www.felinedrive.com/servlet/t...omplete/Detail
    and just love it! I talked to hubby and he said to go ahead and buy it. Asking him to buy anything isn't the problem, I pretty much buy what I want, within reason and he doesn't mind, as long as it keeps me happy.
    The problem is....should I buy it? The price is a bit steep, but, we all know that fabric/kits aren't cheap. I have no clue as to WHEN I would get around to making it. I have soooo many things on the back burner that NEED to get done.
    So, would you buy it and just tuck it away until you could get to it or wait and hope that it's still available at the price it's going for now.....
    Anyone confused yet??

    Oh, I don't need the Quilt Fuse, since I bought some at an AWESOME price. I have a couple other watercolor quilts/wallhangings that I am going to do...someday.

    You know you will kick yourself down the road if you don't get it Terri. :) When something reaches out and grabs you, it's meant to be in your sewing room is my philosophy! lol :)

    Yea, I know. Been there, done that, then smacked myself later.
    I'm sure FelineDrive is going to be VERY nice to me. They are the ones I ordered from in Dec, but didn't recieve until Feb. They did give me back $50, which was nice. They just couldn't get their act together on the shipping charges, even tho I TOLD them exactly what to do. Oh well....
    I guess I'll wait until in the morning to order it. I dunno....I'm torn. I REALLY love it, but just not the price......hmmmmm.......

    I say buy it. You don't know if it will be available when you are ready to make it. It really is pretty. It's not like it's going to go bad waiting for you to get to it!

    LOL Oh yes...I LOVE helping the economy! LOL

    You know my love for cats and that is what drew me to it, plus it's just so darn cute!
    Ok, I guess I'm talked into it. It'll come out of my share of our tax refund, but that's ok. We decided that this year, whatever we got back we were splitting and not putting on the bills. Gotta have fun once in a while, yes?

    You should order it. I opened that link and said OHHHH I want it to. That is one beautiful quilt. If you don't get it now you will be so sad if it is gone later. Just let it age to perfection before you start it. LOL

    Yup, ordering it in the morning.
    I've learned my lesson on most things. If I find a free pattern online, I print it out right away. Have "lost" a few nice ones due to them not being free anymore.

    See how easy that was to talk me into it? lol
    I just needed a little push, I guess

    Ruth, it's a watercolor. I've seen the appliques on other quilts, but I think with the whole thing put together, it just makes the cutest thing.
    There's no way I could find the floral and then cut it into 2" squares. Just not my thing. I don't like working with little pieces...ask Machel, she'll tell you. lol
    But, since it's all cut for me, that's not a problem AND it's all fused onto the quilt fuse, then I'm pretty much home free.
    I will, however, probably order a little extra fabric.

    I love it, Terri. When something reaches out and touches you, that's a sign. If you don't buy it, you'll be kicking yourself forever and we don't want that!!!! I bet you've spent that much on fabric for a quilt at one time or another.

    (besides Big Boy is goin' love it!)

    Oh yes....I've spent MUCH more than that for fabric for just a quilt top and the matching pillowcases and shams! Just don't know why I have so much trouble with this one. <shrug>
    Maybe because it's for me and all of the quilt I have made have been given away.

    Big boy loves ALL my quilts. The one that Machel made me, he likes to steal when I'm on the couch. lol

    looks like you have found the best price for it, Terri, everyone else wants an arm and a leg for it. You deserve a quilt that you personally want......you're such a giver.....go for it, I say!

    I think you've all ready ordred this, but....if you didn't, and if it is still available later, think of how much more expensive it will be then!

    The price for a kit: $200. The joy it gives when receiving it in the mail, starting it, getting it right, showing everyone on the forum for many oohs and ahhhhs, repeating for each square as completed... priceless.

    For all that joy--that's darn cheap. :wink:

    Besides now I'm all excited about seeing those blocks... make sure you take close ups. Watercolor is one of my favorites.

    I have a request--do the square with the quilt on the car first. :D

    Whoever said you HAVE to justify everything you buy? I bought a McKenna Ryan pattern kit for BEAUCOUP buckaroos and I just love it. No buyer's remorse. It still sits in the shipping box and I may NEVER do it. But I still LOVE it. If it makes you happy.....listen to your hubby - lol

    Terri, THAT is your quilt. It's the best of the best with your love of cats. Hope you've ordered it already and I'd bet it's one you'll begin sooner than you think. You're going to need some panels to work on coming cross the world again!

    Hugs,
    Sharon

    It's ordered, along with a couple other things. lol
    I have such a hard time getting off that site. It's an addiction when I go there!
    I love almost ALL the fabric they offer, just don't like some of the prices. Most of the prices are for 1/4 yd, but oh well.....gotta have it, right? lol

    Karla, which square are you talking about? Didn't see one with cars on it.

    I told hubby that I ordered it. Didn't tell him I got a couple other things. He doesn't need to know. lol
    He now says that I "owe" him. Yea, right, not!! The silly man! Don't know WHAT he is thinking? lol
