    This is a Christmas gift for my son's sweetheart of a girlfriend. She's an animal lover, but cats and dogs really seem to make her heart sing. (I'm working on that--she had her first horse lesson today. :wink: )

    Here's the pattern--thanks to whoever posted it long ago (maybe Ruth??). I need to make 4 more squares, but wanted to see how it looked before choosing colors. Pictures always help.

    I'm thinkiing to stick to the blue and paw prints...so it adds more subtle colors. It seems a bit busy.

    These are not my colors. :shock: :wink: :lol: :D

    I have a nice batik for the sky, although I like the one in the pattern better. :roll:

    so far....

    Karla, it's coming along purrrrrfect!
    She will love, love, love it!
    I've always loved Stairway to Heaven and I'm sure she'll love it too, plus, YOU are making it which makes it even more special.
    Can't wait to see it all finished!

    I decided on solid black with the water looking fabric for the last four squares--but when I cut it I can see the solid black is such a low quality--I don't want to use it. It's just--yucky. I think I got it at Wal-Mart. I'll grab more tomorrow... hopefully. Then it has to be washed.... darn!

    Nice! I love the fabrics too! How do so many of ya'll manage to find such beautifu fabric? What I see in the store never looks as good once I bring it home. For whatever reason :cry: But yours looks stupendous! :thumbup:
