Thank you, Gail and KCQuilter, re comments. Yes, the girls are my design. Actually, there are eight so far, not a dozen, and a dozen fence pickets; here is the layout. I don't know what to put in the corners. I had baskets there, but maybe it should be something else. Maybe a girl on the diagonal? Floral applique? Ran out of fabric for the background with just a few blocks to go, so I hope Little Quilts has more of it. I imagine they will, since it is from one of their own fabric lines. I'll check today.
I see that the light background pieces are giving an overall light look to the quilt; don't know what I think about that. Might need a dark border for accent.
Here are the cut strips. Haven't cut the black strips yet; I'll get in trouble if I'm not ready for class LOL. I have a matte black and a sateen black with a sheen. Thought that might look kind of nice for contrast.
Oh heavens, I'm going to be late. Karen
