    Ok. This is Chloe's Catherdral Window. Chloe is my granddaughter by adoption. She is now 5. Her favorite color is bright apple green. (Not my color of choice.) I have tried to pick the jewels randomly but sometimes that was a trick. After buying several patterns to start with that matched and looked good together, I decided I needed a few more. Looking in my stash, I found fabrics from clothes I had made for her Daddy, 28 years ago. So, you know I had to add them to the quilt. Then all the penguins that I had used to make her dresses and pillowcases had to be added. So now the quilt has special memories and meaning as I quilt.

    I am about quarter the way done but just had to show you all.
