This was our guild Block of the Month from 2010 - 2011. The applique patterns came from Fatcatpatterns.com. Syndi graciously shared her patterns with us. I chose to use a disappearing nine-patch of various neutrals as my background for the appliques. Check out more of Syndi's great patterns at http://fatcatpatterns.com/ . I'll be proud to put this on the back of the sofa during the holidays this year.
