    I have taken a picture of just three of the sets of strips I have sewn together. Need to re-iron obviously. But it is starting to come along. it will double in size from the first picture. I will then start sewing on my border and just keep it as a lap quilt. I cannot seem to find the packs of fabric at Walmart any more, so this on will be a lap quilt. :P

    This is what I already had completed

    Thank you! This is my first quilt ever, so I was nervous when picking my fabrics. Actually bought the fabric before I ever even knew what type of quilt I would do.

    I also have it in white. I have a green two toned type that is both colors of the green in the leaves. I will use the green and the white print for my border, just not sure how I will coordinate yet :thumbup:

    I have been quilting for years and VERY rarely do I have a quilt in mind when I buy fabric. I buy it because I like it, then find something to coordinate, then figure out a pattern, but that is just me. Also why I have such a big, varied stash!

    P.S. I will STILL take that dog off your hands!
