Ok, Judy post a stash quilt project idea a couple of weeks ago, and being the slow poke that I am, I just now picked out my fabrics. I went a little different direction that her light/dark suggestion and went with a spectrum of blues, greens and purples to pair with pinks, orangy reds and reds. This will be a quilt for the baby of my best friend, who just turned a year old. I'd really like to get this done, start to finish, in 5 weeks or less since they well be moving overseas for an unknown length of time. :( (Their move is actually very sad, in that, her dh has been without a job for over a year, house got damaged by a hurricane last year that insurance wouldn't cover as well as a tiny little beach house in Galveston that was leveled, savings are gone and still no job prospects.) I love my friend dearly and wish her the best. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have at least one last chance to see her before the move.
And just for kicks, here's a picture of my little guy.
