I picked up a really cute, girly package of charms at the quilt store out here in Mesa... there's some owls, turtles, flowers, abcs. I'm working on a quilt quilt for Al's cousin's daughter. She's about three and if I remember right, when my girls were little the favorite color was pink. Im doing kind of a happy block with a border of pink around that and then going to do white sashing with little squares in all the corners. It's getting a yellow flannel backing. Sure is fun working with this color after working with so much beige and brown.

That is going to be so sweet, the center blocks are so cute. Of course you know I love the pink.
Where do you find such yummy solid white? You use solid white quite a bit in your quilts & it is always such a nice looking solid. What fabric line should I be looking for?

I usually use a Kona solid. I love how thick they are. JoAnns carries some of the colors but this white I found at a quilt store.

Very cute and girlish, Deb. I am sure any little girl would be very happy with this quilt. I like Kona solids ... usually I buy at a quilt shop, though. I find that the Kona fabrics at the JoAnn's around here seem thinner to me somehow. Sounds strange, I know. Looking forward to seeing a photo of your completed quilt. :-) Pat

I'm in the process of quilting it now but am having a HECK of a time with this because I picked flannel for the backing. Doing stipple with flannel is VERY time consuming... you have to keep stopping and checking the back.. adding more pins (doing some reverse sewing also!) and taking it VERY slow. No more flannels for me!!

My American Jane quilt is coming along nicely but not without many HICCUPS. I added a small border on the New York Beauty center... A bla...
