    First attempt at a quilt

    Found some really cute Poodle fabric 2 years ago and have been planning since then to make a lap quilt for my boss
    who raises and shows Poodles. Well I finally after 2 years got up the courage to make the attempt. I asked a couple
    of my friends for help as I had never made a quilt before but we never made the time to get together, so finally the
    time came to pull it together myself and brave my way thru. This is the Quilt top that I made.

    I've always been afraid to try attic windows because I thought it would be too hard! Great first quilt.

    Thanks, I saw several mistakes in this first one, so I did the following week make another one. It was actually easier
    than I thought it would be. The top is not finished in this pic, but thought I would share anyway.

    I love the cat quilt. I kick myself, because I saw that fabric once, fell in love with it, but didn't know what could be done with it. Now, if I ever see it again, I will snatch it up and do it just like you did. That is absolutely awesome. For a first time quilt, you did a beautiful job.

    You did a great job on both quilts. That isn't the easiest pattern especially for your first quilt, but you nailed it!!!!

    Great job.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    You did a fantastic job! Your choice of colors, especially on the kitty cats, really emphasizes the 3-D effect of the attic windows. Great quilts!
