    After talking to my niece, she is pretty sure her first Grand Child is a girl! (I can't believe my niece is about to be a grandmother!) She is the oldest grandchild of my Moms although Mom already has 3 great great grand children. This makes 4. My Mom is 85 with 8 children 26 grand children, 32 great grand children and now 4 great great grand children.

    Ooops I went off on a tangent there! lol, I made my Mom a Family tree with everyone and I am the one who updates her tree. Good thing I made lots of room for lots of leaves!

    Judy will it be ok to use solid fabric, I picked 3 colors from the Purple family. A lavendar a fuschia and a dark purple, I will take picture when it comes out of laundry! I am using Flannel, Looking for a perfect backing fabric now!

    Picked my fabrics up this morning. We're re-doing our living room in shades of blue and silver. For some reason, it's the coldest room in the house during the winter, so I thought a throw would be handy.

    Moonrise -- love your fabrics. I'm partial to blue, but since this will be a charity quilt I thought I'd step outside my normal comfort zone. But your blues are tempting me back! I might have to make two.

    I want to hop on the train and go for a ride. I am a new quilter and so eager to make things. I like the first 3 color combinations, don't care for the green. Looking forward to the ride and making new friends

    Delphina. WELCOME. You will have fun!
    Moonrise, I agree with Belfrybat that your fabrics are beautiful.
    Marytodliz
    that is a great idea to use flannel. Can't wait to see it when you finish.
    Belfrybat my family/keeping room is stormy blue with white wainscoting and I love it. I keep thinking I need to make a blue lap quilt for there but I haven't done so yet. After your comments and seeing Moonrise's fabrics I am thinking maybe I should make it now and use a different pattern for my QOV. I have medium gray fleece that would make a wonderful back...

    marytoddliz Never to late to join, as you know! Great idea, make 2, have one on hand LOL And your colors sound yummy, solids will work fine, just make sure there is enough contrast between, because at some point, everything will touch.

    Tomara and Delphina Glad to have you along for our ride, can't wait to see your fabrics

    Oksew thank you so much, appreciate your endorsement!

    Moonrise once again you have picked absolutely fabulous fabrics, I love these colors together.

    Belfry two is always better than one, right?

    Judy, Here are the choices that I have made and need your opinion on which one would be best, if either one!

    Here is my fabric I am looking for a backing flannel that has a print to it that incorporates all my colors, It will be fun to search for it!
