making a few KITS for my quilt guild and HEADERS!?

I HAVE to show you these "headers" first
As you know I got picked/ approved to make 2 quilts for McCalls magazine and then I started looking for fabrics and after a while timeless treasures was so nice to send me these "headers" to look at first
I had no clue what "headers" were
these are AWESOME!!
Uhh I had such a hard time deciding what colors to pick they are all SO lovely.
now WHAT can I make with these? or should I keep them the way they are?? nah.... I want to make SOMETHING?!?
the biggest piece in each pile is 14" x 20" that's almost a FQ... drool
I feel so "special" now. (BLUSH)

okay, on to something else :-)
Last night and today I've been making KITS for my local guild for the ladies to piece together for baby quilts.
This is the first one, the main almost white fabric is actually really cute, it's a nursery rhyme fabric in faint pastel colors.

I had originally thought of boy colors, then changed my mind when I looked at my stash

this is KIT #2 in blues and yellow and then I found this other cute pooh fabric in my stash.

this is just the suggested layout, but they can turn the blocks any way they want to :-)

hopefully they like it and I forgot to say I cut out all the triangles with my Go! cutter

I didn't know what headers were either but they sure look like they would be fun to play with! Beautiful colors! Have fun picking!

I my cutter for doing multiple kits. I finally have it down where I can work entirely from stash and then sub-cut for future TO DO's cw
