sneak preview...Katie's quilt

These are the fabrics she chose...


...and this is the design. It's called Star Struck.

I was a little concerned that the black would be too dreary for a child's quilt. I kept showing her the same pattern without the black but she remained adamant that she wanted the black and brights. It's her quilt and I aim to please so black and brights it is. The borders on her's will not be the blue and purple but pink and green...her two favorite colors.

I am itching to start cutting the fabric but my sewing machines are both in dire need of tune ups before I can do any sewing, so I need to take care of that before I start cutting anything. I have high hopes that I can finish the top over this winter. I plan on quilting in the ditch around the bright stars. I make no predictions on how long that will take me though. My track record's not so good. With any luck she may get it for her fifth birthday. Wish me luck!
