They all flipped over the pattern
submitted by Antoinette Callori
I've sent a photo of the Summer Flip Flop quilt from the Fons & Porter May/June 2008 issue. I made it as a wedding gift for my cousin, who was married in Florida. The wedding had a beach theme and the favors were miniature flip-flops. It was a big hit, they really "flipped" over it. Thanks for all the great patterns.
It's a winner
