    3 firsts, and I like it!!!!

    First machine applique project, first flip flop, and first batik quilt. (I did do a small wallhanging just prior). I started this project with our church group. I didn't think I was going to like it so was just making a small piece, wall hanging or lap quilt. WELL, when I saw the small project, I went home and made more blocks and this is the finished product. Of course it will go into my pile of tops that need to be quilted, but I am slowly working on that, too. After the rotator cuff surgery it is still painful to do too much FM. So I am doing a little at a time. Not sure what to put on the back???? Oh, this top is Cat tested and Kitten approved!!! That's Max, our office cat. His sister Lizz isn't as outgoing as Max, but she still checks out all the projects we bring in to share. Thanks for looking.

    Very nice first. Is it not funny how some cats test drive a quilt to see how they coordinate with the colors?

    I can see why you decided to make a larger on after seeing how the wall hanging turned out. It is a beautiful quilt. The colors are wonderful and the design is great. I know just what you mean by piling on the quilt tops...me too!

    Very pretty, I like the white with the fall colors. I made a whole series of flip flop quilts a year or so back, it was a fun technique.

    That is my favourite of the flip flop patterns. They did quite a few, pears and Christmas ornaments come to mind right now. I love your quilt top!

    I've looked at this leaf pattern but thought it would be too bland---well I no longer think that. The arrangement and colors make the leaves really stand out. Glad the kitty approves.
