We spent the weekend in Logan with our daughter, Nicky and her family. We just love this little girl. It is so fun to have a baby around again. This was after Church on Sunday...she and her Daddywere building a fort out of the couch cushions. more picture, Grandma???

I was visiting Pokey's blog and she had these cute string hearts so I thought I needed to make some too. After all, I have all these strips cut out and trying to figure out what to do with them all. I have all the left sides of the blocks done but only 1 right side so far. They certainly go together easily and I think they will make a cute little quilt for a baby. are all the fabrics for the Kaleidoscope quilt I've been talking about. I know, the fabrics don't seem to jive together but according to Ricky Tims that just makes for a more interesting quilt.

Here I've divided them up into sets: 5 sets with 6 strips each. I made 2 identical of each set.
Started sewing them together. Don't know if you can tell that I started out making each set coordinate. By the 3rd set I was just throwing whatever strip I felt like. Now I need to draw the pattern on freezer paper, marking every seam etc. and cut out each pattern piece. I am so excited but I'm having company this weekend so I won't get around to sewing on it until next week!

Oh this is a fun one! Happy Quilting. Lynda

That is a darling grandbaby! I can't wait to see your quilt.

Hey, thanks for the holler out, Lynda! I hope you have some fun with the hearts. Your strips/strings look great, too, I'll be watching with interest.
Now, that little dolly of yours is too, too cute! Those bright eyes are precious.

Your grand daughter is so cute! What a little princess. I can't wait to see what you'll do with your fabric strips. I'm sure it's going to be gorgeous. Hope you are doing well.

Sweet, sweet little granddaughter!
I'm currently working on a Ricky Tims Kaleidoscope quilt too. I think your fabric choices are great, and the striped fabric will really add some movement.
