    Hi Everyone,
    I am pretty darn pleased with this top so far. So, I thought I would share it here with you. It still has the borders to go and the quilting. See what you think..... Oh it is on a blue design wall and is 56 x 56.

    Thanks girls! :D :D
    I had to re-work the pattern dodie sent me. But, as long as I have a picture, I am able to do that. The finished blocks are seven inches. And the top and bottom arrows were added because I didn't like it stopping without them. And I eliminated four animals from the original design.
    I don't have EQ so I took two copies of the pattern picture and cut one up and pasted the sections on to the second copy so I could see what it would look like changed to this way before I cut into the fabric. I also changed the block size, because the animals were too cramped at the size the pattern gave.

    Hubby is thrilled! I would have never believed that he would care about a quilt. Strange .... :shock:

    :oops: Gee thanks girls! I don't know if you remember, but I found the fabric for this in a second hand store. All but the grey was there. Well the line is long since out of print, so looking for the grey was a nightmare. I found this grey at Windy Moon Quilts, a fabric by marcus brothers. I am so glad the other fabric was unavailable. I love that print with it.

    I really love that quilt top, Red! I love the colors and fabric. Doing it for your husband is a great idea -- I may have to steal that idea from you.

    It is a great quilt!

    And for all practical purposes, you (re)designed it yourself - with maybe a bit of inspiration from the original pattern. With all the changes you made, it's just about a new pattern. Nice arrangement of the animal prints and other fabrics.

    Looks real good, so far. I can't wait to see it all finished. :D

    Oh....And if hubby doesn't like it, let me know. I'll PM you my address and you can send it to me.

    :wink: Thanks ever so much girls. Your very sweet to say all those wonderful things about the quilt top. Hubby keeps coming up stairs to see if I have finished it ....LOL! He has no clue that it will take a while to quilt it after I buy the batting.

    You girls are right though about him bragging to the guys about it. He went out to run errands this morning and has told a few of his buddies about it, even his barber. Ha ha ha ha hahaha ha ... Who Knew? Gee I think he might be a little easier on me now when I buy fabric and such. I should have thought of this sooner!

    Dodie .. A big special thanks for the pattern and the fabric. Even though I didn't use the fabric. I had everything but the grey. I will have to make something else to use up the things you sent. Gift bags?? Pillows?? Who knows. Anyway you are a dear to have sent it to me. Thanks so much. :D I was really stumped as to how to set this to show off those animals. And a compliment coming from a teacher is music to my ears.
