New Project In The Works

Ok..starting the new project.  Daughter and family are in the process / have moved into a new home.  I thought it only fitting that I should make the girls their own quilts to carry forward into their lives.

I have picked the colors I want to work with..and with some help from their grandmother..with color hints for each of the girls...  I am working on Livi's first.

Livi's colors will be Pink, Lavendar, Red.

The pattern is to use fat quarters, cut three shapes from each quarter:  1 - 10.5 x 10.5 inch square, 1 - 6.5 x 10.5 inch rectangle, 1- 6.5 x 17 inch rectangle.  From the left over piece, I will use that in the border.  Each complete square is a 16 inch block.

Each block contains one of each of the colors.

I am including two pics of progress to date.

Pic 1:  I laid out the rows on the bed to see what they look like.

Pic 2:  I have sewn the bottom three rows together and will finish the top three tomorrow.

I want to do the border slightly different than the original plan. So as that works itself through my braincells on how to do it, I will add pics of it.
