    I am attempting to copy PatriceJ's "Big Cats" quilt. I was going to use doggie fabrics but ended up with fall prints instead. The rows are just laid out next to each other for now. I am still pondering what kind of border(s) I want.

    This is the after. A few more prints and some lighter tones.

    This is Smoky, checking to make sure the seams are straight.

    Very nice! I liked it at first with all the orange, but I like it better now. Smokey must have given you good advice :lol:

    Smoky is the big cat. I like that pattern a lot, and you can't go wrong with fall colors. Very nice.
