okay, here are the pictures. by the way, my boyfriend's mom let me quilt it on her long-arm machine. it was my first attempt, so the quilting probably could've been better, but i'm still super happy with how it turned out. i am also now very in love with the long-arm...this was also my first time with applique. i found out that fake fur is very forgiving!

a close up of the flowers between blocks (i went a little outside the lines on that one. oh well!):


and the back (for the rainbow connection):


i hope you enjoyed it and that there weren't just waaaay too many pictures!
thanks for lookin'!  Grin

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.
