Little Blue With a Kiss of Pink


Peg, I'm happy to report that Little Blue has been added to the finished list. I used white flannel for the back with some pieced scraps left from the front. The flannel was left over from covering my design wall. The binding is a very faint pink...I like the kiss of pink on this quilt. The quilting is very simple random lines in a fan shape across the quilt. Though it's not my favorite I think it will give comfort to a child, so I'm satisfied with it. My two donation quilts, Little Blue and this one are done and ready to be delivered.

I've been doing some thinking about what I would like to have finished for Peg's Five by the end of July Challenge and here they are.
Little Blue - Done!
Red and White quilt-a-long quilt
Pinwheels in the Garden
Hannah's graduation quilt
Connections
Some are barely started so it would be quite an accomplishment if I could turn them all into finished quilts that quickly. Thanks to Peg for the motivation!

Jacquie, it is perfect. The pink is the perfect kind of kiss. Just a peck, not a tongue kiss or make out session! I think you are on a great streak. Don't forget you can add a little quilt to the list.
Your cat sounds like a mix of the two pets I have had in my life. Jake was my childhood cat. We got him when we moved to the wilderness in WY to take care of the mice. He would line them right up for us at the door. He was very particular with people as well! Then there is Bertha. It took 2 years before she let me touch her. We are afraid to take her to the vet because of the bodily harm she may cause to us and the Vet. I'll have to wrap her in a towel and deal with the hisses lol. But we LOVE her to death. They have a way of grabbing our hearts even when we don't want them to. I am sure yours is smiling at you wherever he may be! Hope all is well. Love Stacy

Little Blue turned our perfectly - the pale pink border was a most inspired choice - just adds a lovely finishing touch. I am sure it will bring comfort and warmth to a special little someone!
