    These are the blocks I have finished for my DGD's quilt. She will be 12 in Dec. and she is definitely a flip-flop loving girly girl. All of the bright fun fabrics we picked remind me soooo much of her. I have a long way to go, but, making these blocks was so much fun!

    how cute is that!! Are you going to put something inbetween the blocks? I think that you are doing a wonderful job on it and that any teen or preteen girl would love it. Thanks for sharing.

    Very neat. Are the flip flops appliqued on or are they pieced? I am thinking it must be applique but sometimes I get surprised.

    Looking good. I live in flip flops or bare feet in the summer. I may have to try one of these some day. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Thanks everyone for all of your nice comments. This quilt is a pattern from a Fons and Porter magazine. I just laid them out like this to take the picture. The flip-flops are appliqued and then machine zigzagged onto the white fabric block. DGD did help pick out the fabrics for the flip-flops. She is so busy with softball practice and games, she doesn't have time for much of anything else. That will all be over soon and then it will be school!! Do you believe that the start of the school year is less than a month away already!!!!!

    Your GD is certainly one lucky girl, love the colours, lovely & bright & full of life. I'm sure she'll be over the moon when she receives it.

    Belinda-What great fabrics you chose!! Is this quilt going on her bed? I made a flip-flop wallhanging for my 20+ year old flip-flop wearing daughter a few years ago. Since it was just to hang on the wall, I used different ribbons to coordinate with each pair of shoes for the straps and left them loose-like you are going to slip your feet in. Where the ribbon attaches to the shoe between the toes I added cute buttons. It was so fun to collect wild fabrics, ribbons and buttons and she LOVED the quilt. Your granddaughter is going to love this one too. What fabric are you going to use for sashing?

    I love your quilt. I have been looking everywhere for this same pattern. Would you possibly send me the pattern for it? My email address is [email protected]. Thank you so much for this. My name is Dianne.
