the first quilt for the new girls!

We started the quilt!(the first one anyway) O helped me choose fabrics. Then I ironed and ct 8 inch squares.(I HATE that part!!) Step three was letting O help me lay them out. SHE chose our layout and we think she did very well. She is amazingly artistic and wanted colors to go together. I was a bit surprised how that turned out so much better than MY idea of constrasting colors. This has a rainbow like effect of colors. After arranging them, we used index cards to write what each row was, then we stacked all the squares from that row and put them in gallon sz ziplock bags. So now we are ready to sew!!
