Hands 2 Help/my new baby

I would like to introduce you to  "Bonnie".  The newest member of my sewing family.  Isn't she a sweetie?
Now I know she isn't as large or sophisticated as some as your ladies but this little girl fits in just perfectly at my place.  I think we will be great play pals.  Bonnie was named after a dear friend of mine that introduced me to quilting.

Now onto the "Hands 2 Help"  update on my choice of quilts.  This is a vintage top I was thinking would be good for a veteran to use as a lap throw.  But now that I look at the picture
I think that maybe it is a little to dull and has a couple places with a little discoloration.  I'm going to quilt the stars and stripes in off white and still looking for the binding.  I'll show it again when finished and you all can tell me what you think.  I'm leaning towards just keeping it as my first quilt on Bonnie though.

Most of  you have met Maggie,  (faking sleep).  The moment I turned my back to get the camera,

Yep, you guessed it.  So this will have to be washed before shipping.   You never know  who has an allergy to cats.
I think I'm just going to put pink heart quilting in the solid Blocks.  Keep it simple.

Now who can resist that sweet kitty, but I'm telling ya, just try and scratch that belly.
I still have another quilt I want to try to get done just in case the vintage top doesn't work out well.
Guess I had better go and get busy.

Hope this finds everyone well and getting along with their quilting.
Hugs and blessings
