Playing with Fabric

Looking ahead to the next project, I promised Anna we could work together on a quilt for her using the above fabrics. Aren't they soooo cute??? She really wants to sew something since her big sister, Claire, finished a quilt top over spring break. Come to think of it, I need to post some pictures of Claire with her quilt. Let me go see if I can find some........
