I used mainly modern fabrics I'd recently acquired from several different designers. One of the fabrics I used in the quilt, the royal blue one with stars on, is from a quilt that never did get made, just a few blocks, for then teenage daughter, Brianne. So let's just say it's an older fabric, ha, and on that is not a dig at her age. (both daughters read the blog) When shuffling through my blues, which are plentiful btw, in my stash, I saw that this went perfectly with the arrows fabric and the pink starfish fabric.

Here is the back, again an older cotton fabric I love which went perfectly with the colours on the front.
Nice and crinkly after laundering!

Meet Scout, 7-8 week old former orphan, new granddaughter kitty. Dayna got this precious sweetheart, aka nugget, as Beth Stern calls her kitten fosters, last weekend. She is an almost clone of her other cat Harper. If you don't get the connection between Scout and Harper, To Kill A Mockingbird is Dayna's all-time favourite book. 😽 Can't wait to snuggle her this coming weekend!
