Fun lap quilt

I'm working on a cute little Christmas lap quilt...in one of my favorite festive fabric lines, "Have a Sheri Berry Holiday." It's got beautiful corals, aquas and spring greens. I started with the panel, and added two borders in the same group. I did make (my first!!) pinwheels blocks for the corners, using my favorite "Darla" fabric and some Kona cotton in Snow.

Sorry about the glare, too sunny today I guess! Here are some closeups...

Oh! Look who's here to rumple up the fabric!

That's one of my kitties, Holly Berry. We usually call her Hol-Bear. My cats are irresistably drawn to anything I'm working on.
Anyway, so I pinned it all and now it's just waiting for me to quilt it. I've been struggling with experimenting with stippling, so I'm going to attempt that again. I had mixed results with a Halloween quilt I just made. I guess the only way to get better is to keep going with it, right? I'm using a darling flannel backing that I found on fabric.com....isn't it cute?

I love it, it's going to make this a warm snuggly quilt! Ok, better go finish doing some housework...joy!
