    This top is DONE!!!! It was originally supposed to be a Disappearing Nine Patch...but when I told DD that I was going to CUT the black flowered fabric, the poor girl started CRYING! So we improvised, she picked out some sashing, which there wasn't enough of to do a border, so she picked the yellow, which matches the hearts in the LPS fabric and that made her happy. There are about a million things that I hate about this top...but I won't list them, because the end result is a happy little girl with a quilt she loves (besides, I posted my complaining vent earlier today, :lol: ). And those pets?? All fussy cut. I tried to cut them all a little differently, so they weren't exactly the same. Ok, I lied - I HATE fussy cutting and I don't ever intend to do it again! LOL

    kriskraft and wolph33, you should recognize some of the fabric. Thank you both, DD is totally in love with them.

    The whole thing - It looks a lot better in a small picture than it does up close...LOL

    You made a good choice of not cutting the flowers. I like it just like that. Those eyes will keep her attention for a long time.
    Good job.

    I will probably show this to Rachel(8 yr old DGD) Sat when she gets here. I will probably regret showing her because then she will want one too!!!LOL

    She collects all the littlest pet shop stuff she can. She LOVES the littlest pet shop pets.

    You did a wonderful job in letting her decide. It looks great just the way it is!!

    If you're interested, I bought the littlest pet shop fabric from a member here, kriskraft. I don't think I bought all of what she had, of course, I don't know if she has any left. No harm in letting you know. :o)

    I'll check it out. I may not make a quilt but I could use the fabric for a pillow or maybe a tote bag. That would be really cute too.

    Well, wish me luck. I have Dia's quilt sandwiched and ready to quilt. Minkee backing, no batting (she gets very warm and doesn't need the extra). I'm binding it in satin...should be interesting. LOL This will be my first FMQ'd quilt...just a simple loop to loop all over except on the pets, which I'm going to *try* to outline...lol. I hope it turns out ok!!

    Well...I've free motion quilted one strip of sashing across, and two squares within one 9-patch...it's far from perfect and kind of looks like child's scribbling, and I'm all sore (I'm trying to loosen up!), but it's a start, and eventually it will all be quilted, and I *think* it will look half decent when done. :D I'll post a picture of my start when I get a chance...maybe someone can offer me some tips. :D
