Stepping out of my box...

So... all you prim hookers... turn your heads QUICK!! LOL I've been stepping out of my box - and LOVING IT !
Cheryl, if you're reading this - can you believe all the BLUE/AQUA i'm using??!?!? LOL (note to everyone else... i do NOT DO blue!)
But for some reason, making these fresh quilts call for a totally different palette, and I'm all over embracing hot pinks, lime greens, aquas, bright yellows, and my favorite... polka dots! :)
This is my DQS7 (doll quilt swap 7) quilt that i am sending to my partner. Hoping she likes it! (i made a second one for Kelley.. think she'll disown me??)
My partner was a veryyyy hard one to figure out! Weeks of stalking her blog... and reading and rereading what she likes and doesnt like... i was in such a state of confusion, it wasnt even funny! But.. i did narrow down that she's partial to blues, and greens..likes funky and wild, and has a couple kitties. So i went from there. Crossing my fingers this makes her smile... and not frown! :D
Had tons of fun making it!

I think it is a great little quilt, love the simplicity and colors with the kitty. I really want to quilt, but need to finish up the projects that are on deadline, then I need to find time for me;)

For someone who does not do blue you have done it right looks great!

Wow--great quilt! It is good to step out of the gets too stuffy in there. I can't imagine your partner not loving it.

I think this quilt is wonderful. I love the colours. I really like the back- especially how the quilting was done on the cat to show it over the quilted pattern on the back.
