    This one is great, and I'm sure you'll figure something out for the leopard too. Maybe someone has some they might like to trade.

    how beautiful!! I am impressed that you had this fabric in your stash... how awesome is that... leopard colors?? or leopard print... i would try to find the fabric that has the colors of leopard and then she can use it forever... leopard print itself goes in and out of fashion... right?
    You did a good thing..

    Lovely quilt. Now to the leopard problem. Here is a pic from my quilt ideas folder utilizing fussy cuts of a big cat print and one of my favorite patterns, a DP9.

    I totally agree here - might as someone suggested use the colors of a leopard, but would definitely not use a leopard print, in my HO that is really quite a phase of likes for some people and soon fades. Quilts are meant to last for years, so I would go with something else, and as Dal Lady suggested use the term leopard in the label or a pic of one on the label.

    Jan, I love this fabric and the pattern! I realize that if you had it in your stash, you may not remember where you got it but I've searched with no luck! Do you remember? And re the pattern, what size are the blocks and how big is the finished quilt? As someone said, it looks very "antiquey"--civil war style. The fabric designs and colors are just perfect!! I'll definitely save the pics in my Ideas folder!
