    Never again. The test for the galloping horse is in effect for this one. The dark brown fabric is fake fur, the solid pink is satin and the other fabrics are flannel. I made every mistake possible. I cut 2 pieces too short. Had to piece 5 pieces of fabric back together, the satin was so crawley that I had to put interfacing on the back of it. The flannel was not cut straight in the kit, so when I straightened it, I had to piece the center panel too. Yikes! Glad it is finished. It is soft and cuddley for my soon-to-be granddaughter.

    well it looks great. i used some faux fur for a stuffed animal yrs ago and recently found some left over. I started cutting it and wow, never again. it was everywhere. i ended up putting it in my charity bag. way too much mess.

    If you don't tell, no one will know. It looks like you planned it well and it turned out to be a lovely quilt.

    looks great-most store bought pre-cuts are not as accurate as we cut

    I love it. But, I don't particularly like working with that kind of fabric. I made a fake fur animal throw for the back of the couch. Like you said, it crawled all over the place.

    Thanks for all your nice comments. My daughter saw it in progress last weekend and she loves it. She DID notice the boo boos, but says that it's fine.

    Yes, it's a kit from Joanne's. The cutting errors were mine alone, but the fabric choices were theirs. Just not my thing.
