That is just beautiful. Love the colours. The black borders around every second block are really snappy. Zooming in to the fabrics is a revelation! First glance I thought it was all solids! 
I have to pin baste on a hard surface. Otherwise I do pin to the carpet and can't get it all flat and tight. I've read that sheet are hard to quilt through for backing. I guess that doesn't matter for machine quilting. Hmmmm never thought of that.
Your quilting kittehs are cute. My cat thinks every quilt belong to him. Gets quite huffy when I move him off.
Congratulations on a beautiful job. Your BFF is very lucky Cheesy

I am bookmarking this page.

I love the pattern- the black really makes the design pop. Thank you for the step-by-step photo tutorial! I'm getting ready to start my first quilt and I feel so lost, but posts like this make it seem so easy (until I actually get started and need to come back and reference these boards 15x Wink )

Your helpers are doing a fabulous job- they're pretty cute to boot.
