    I haven't fused or appliqued them yet, but I think I'm going to use these on the yellow background for the pillow.
    I have a little more than 20 more sets for the quilt, so when I decide how I'm going to put them together, will post a pic of them.

    Yes I am. The pillow is for a friends little girl, she just turned two last month, so it will be the June pillow case for her pillow. Already made her 3 others, and will do one for each month.

    The actual quilt is 20 blocks (allthe same) but the flip flops will be different. Then will make a square pillow to match. That set will be for my niece that will be continueing her college education in Ft. Lauderdale, so I thought Flip Flops would fit the city.

    It will be just great Mary :D

    I have been to Fort Lauderdale!!, we did a trip about 3 years ago, did the usual at Orlando, then down to F.L., Clearwater then over to Miami, then down to Key West.

    We hired a small plane at the keys, and the pilot allowed my son Ryan to take the controls....his face was a picture!! He was sixteen at the time, what an experience....The keys look amazing from the sky, we could see all the turtles and dolphins....one very special place Florida...BUT I don't like your thunerstorms.... :shock: :shock:

    Actually thunderstorms are seriously scary here in Spain, November and april seem to be the time for them. We get torrential rain too. We are situation about 750 metres above sea level, so when the storms come in we are literally in the clouds and the thunder is all around you, thankfully it only happens a couple of times a year....when we visited Floriday in April it was every day...lol!

    mary705 That looks adorable! It reminds me of time I was in school on Oahu and spent a long weekend with a friend on Kauai. I forgot church shoes and she insisted "slippa's" as they are called there were perfectly acceptable. I kept my feet hidden as well as I could because the only other people I saw wearing them were the teenaged boys! :lol:

    Really Terri? Was it a very strong one? Do you have to worry about a sunami? We had one a couple weeks ago, but it was only 4.5, couldnt even feel it, it was out in the ocean :)

    I dunno how big it was, but let me tell you...it rocked me in the bed and I DID NOT like it. Normally it doesn't bother me, but this one did. Bill said the van rocked back and forth, so it was a good sized one.
    tsunamis? I'm watching!!! ;)

    The highest we've had is about 7.5, but never any damage where we are from them, we get them occasionally, most of them i dont feel, but a couple have made the couch or bed shake, that's creepy when that happens

    Elizabeth it was just one of those little 4 seater cessna type pleasure planes hire for an hour or something...that was some experience, he let Ryan have the controls right up to the point of touch down - boy was my heart in my mouth, I didn't mind Ryan zooming us up and down to look at the turtles but I sure didn't fancy him landing the blinking thing...lol :lol: :lol:

    :lol: Seeing that my daughter is nearly 3 I don't think I need to worry to soon about her flying us around. My dh on the other hand, is so aware of my comfort levels that he made me love jet ski-ing!

    I'm getting to use a lot of my funky FQ for this one. I'm also doing a Cat quilt for my cousin, and instead of sewing buttons on for the eyes, will use some of the fusable scraps from the flip flops.
