Well how about that!!!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I was reading the paper this morning ... right before my eyes in Brisbane's "Sunday Mail" today is this piccy..... isn't she absolutely adorable!!??!! So to Terry, who suggested "Pandamonium" and to Kris who suggested "Peek-a-boo Pandas" (see caption on photo) ... here's someone else who might agree with your choice of names!!! He he ... she's almost in the same pozzy as the one on my quilt!!!This is the gorgeous Mei Xiang, she's a 10 year old Panda at Washington Zoo who's been feeling a bit down since a shortage of bamboo, so a call was sent out to anyone who had bamboo to bring it in for her ... result, one much happier girl :o).

I've been working very hard on writing up the pattern and it's not far off being done, so if I get it finished in the next few days I'll draw the giveaway early ... but there's still time to get a comment in here to win a pattern for this quilt :o). Just leave a comment on that post, maybe with a suggestion for a name for this quilt if you like just for fun, and I'll draw 3 winners very soon!!!
Talk soon ....................

I love Pandas and Pinwheels (my very favourite block!)_ - so maybe 'P' is for Pinwheels and Pandas!

Hey Joy!! I just loooooooove pandas! Well, OK, I love most bears, but pandas always look so cuddly and just a little bewildered by the world - probably why I feel an afinity with them! Tee! Hee! Hee! I'm sending sympathetic vibes your way - I hate writing pattern instructions, but it's fun to think of how people will enjoy using them to make their own treasures!! Happy writing - we'll have a competition to see who's eyes are squarest! Tee! Hee! Hee! Bear Hugs! KRIS

The cutest baby quilt I've ever seen. You did a great job. I even laughed out loud at the panda's. Well done and I like the name Pandamonium.

Hi Joy,
just wanted to tell that your pandas are adorably cute! Well done...!
Hugs, Julia
P.S. 'Pandamonium' is just a great name...as is 'Peek-a-boo Pandas' {maybe even more because the quilt perfect for a child...}
