    My grandaughter will be 8 in June, This will be her gift. I am doing machine applique. These will be all cats. These are the firs three. Should I make them all one color or pink and purple or varied colors...what is your opinion :D

    Ruth,
    Your blocks for your grand daughter are so cute. I like the pink colors, but also think that you could use some lavender's, if you like. I also think a few pastels would be great. You can almost do anything with it. She is going to love it!! :D :D :D

    Just the pink looks lovely. Personally I'm a fan of the scrap look, and would opt for more toning colours.

    I think I would be guided by your grand-daughter's favourite colours, and then you couldn't go wrong.

    I like what you're doing.

    I like pink and purple... but as above, it depends on your tastes really.

    It's going to look awesome, no matter which colourway you choose. :-)

    This is going to be a darling quilt, whichever way you choose! That second photo is awesome, Ruth - I have the hardest time taking pictures of white on white fabric, mine just never come out that good!

    Nice work!
    I am a blue person, and if you put blue anywhere near me on anything, I love the whole thing. Using other colors and putting pink in as an accent, your pink little grandy will love the whole thing, I have no doubt.
    But, I think whatever you do, grandydaughter will love it!
    Thank you for sharing!

    Ruth, please post pictures when you're done!! I would love to see it! I'm guessing it's going to be really beautiful - I love your kitty blocks!!
    Either way you do it, whether all pink, or mixed, it's going to look great! :D

    Oh I just love the kitty blocks!!! I like pink and purple together, so that's how I'd vote :wink: But it's gonna be adorable no matter what other colors you do or don't add!!

    She's going to love it. I think I would do different pastels, but that's just me. I love your kitties!

    I would do different pastel colors. My GD's favorite color WAS purple and she now likes pink. So if you do a mix of colors and she changes her mind, a color will be there if she suddenly likes a different color. Can't wait to see the completed quilt, no matter what you decide to do.

    I'd stick with all pink checks if you can't get the
    checks in other pastels. My next cat quilt will
    be twelve of the same block but in the 12 colors
    or my last 12 cats.

    Her favorite colors are pink and purple, so I think I will try that, I can always change it. I am not happy with the cat who is sitting on his butt, not quite the right size, so will do that one again :wink:

    Your kitties are so cute maybe your sashings could be purple or in a light green.
