Amelia's First Quilt

My gorgeous and fabulous stepdaughter Amelia, aged 11, has taken to sewing big time.
This is she cutting strips from which to build her first quilt.

Amelia chose all the fabrics herself and has gone for a scrumptious pallet of "fluoro" blues and browns with some black and white and a hint of metallic gold. I love the way she has played within this range of colours.
The block we are doing is a variation on "Pussy in the Corner" which appeals to us as Amelia loves cats.
The reason why we've pinned them into these odd shapes is experimenting with order of colours in each block.  It's so good having a design wall!
