My very first design.....

I actually designed my very first quilt.  I used Cheri Saffiote-Payne's quilt that I had chosen for last month's Charming Girls challenge as a starting off point.  When I finished with it, the only thing that was the same was the size of the first block and the fact that it had a flower on it.


I haven't decided on a name or finished writing the pattern yet.  This is just the prototype.  There is a little tweaking to do.  But it's a start.  All the appliques are wool and the backgrounds are from my extremely large stash of plaids.

Blessings, Cathi
