    :shock: This was fun & quick, but I let my 6 yr old DD pick the strings.
    It's very bright! It's 7 1/2" square.

    For those of us who are "scrappy challenged" and insist on trying to match colors...what a great idea!!! I will have to let my grands pick the fabrics out of the container!!!

    It looks fun. Are you gonna make it for your DD? I bet she is having a blast helping. Keep us updated on the quilt. Would love to see it. Just send it with a warning to put on our sunglasses! LOL

    Your daughter seems to have a good color sense. I think you should let her pick out all of them.

    You are right, it's bright but it's also so cheery. What a block with which to start! You must be so pleased.

    Your DD has fun taste! I let my DD pick her princess quilt fab, too! LOL! Funny what they come up with.

    Yes, I've been saving a small bucket of strings, so today I told her that we would make a couple of blocks a week, then quilt them for her. :-)

    Well, you can call it a fun taste, but her saying is:
    "The brighter, the better!" :lol: :lol:
    Her daddy calls it tacky! 8)
