    I put my other scrap quilt on hold until I can gather up more fabrics. So in the meantime, I got this started. The fabric around the pictures is actually a Drk purple. Not sure why its showing blue. Other then what I did already, I'm still in the planing stage. I have 2 ideas going in my head. Alternate Drk & Lt purples (framed pix)
    OR
    Have a plain lt purple block. The pink will be the outside border as I didn't realize til I got home, that it had sparkles in it.
    The kids (son & fiance)are here (Davids bday was the 4th..27.. Had a BBQ party for him)) for the weekend, so I'll get going on it Monday when everyones gone. Hopefully by then I'll decide. I don't have a board to hang them on so I take pix so I can sit and look at them to figure it out.

    Oh hun, aren't you sweet. I say I'm a beginner cuz I've only been at it what 2 months I think. But I've sewed for yrs and you gotta do alot of matching there. But I was told I'm just a nateral at this. I don't know about that. I never think of it, I'm just having fun. I can't wait to show you my finished pink quilt. My first one. But there again, I can't do the finishing touches til Monday. The kids are camped out on the floor of my sewing room

    Remember me doing the pink quilt for my friends daughter? This is for her sister.(Janelles oldest daughter) I was gonna do ballerinas, but nothing grabbed me. I found the Disney Princesses at Walmart so grabbed it.

    I think any girl who loves Disney will fall in love with the colors and arrangement you picked out. The sparkles will just add to the fantasy theme.

    Very pretty Bev!!! Don't you just love the Disney Princess fabric!! Sewbusy made a quilt from purple Disney Princesses (along with a couple other wonderful ones) for my nephew's benefit in May. Did I mention his tests came back and he's CANCER FREE teehee. Then the sweet sweet darlin sewbusy made another one in purples for my 4 yr old and a glow in the dark Care Bear quilt for my 7 yr old. She is such a wonderful gal!! I still need to get pics posted of them.

    You're doing such a wonderful job Bev...and only a couple of months!!!!

    Oh good. Its hard for me as I have no girls. Well Blythe (David's fiance') so I'm not sure what all they like. I live in a house full of men. Even my fur baby's are all boys lol. My problem now is do I frame with Lt purple or do a plain block? Ohhhhhhhhhhh decisions, decisions.

    Bev I like the plain light purple in between because the scenes show up so much more. Maybe you could trace something out of the scene and embroider it on the plain square. Like the little bird, just an outline embroidery so you don't have too much going on.
