    Well, folks. Here it is, all washed and cuddly. It has character, that's for sure. When I made the blocks, I should have made them 1/4" smaller. I had to add to the fleece side for everything to come together. When I went to get green fleece, the only one they had to match was Minky. It is so stretchy and hard to work with; but is okay if you don't look too close. I ended up binding it with the stripe on the bias. I starched it so it went just fine. Here are pictures taken on my spare bed. The label says "To Gabrielle With Love From Grannie Christmas 2010" I used pink & green variegated thread for the quilting & the label.

    To answer a couple questions; the cat fleece came from Joann's and some of the flannel. Rest of the flannel, most of the greens came from fabric.com. The pattern is just my idea; no real pattern. I tried log cabin, but didn't like it. Decided the simple strips was better. Her curtains in the room are pink, green, and white stripe, so I thought the stripe would look nice to tie it all together.
