A quilt for Hayden

A while back Hayden asked me to make her a very specific quilt. One side was to be yellow and pink squares and the other was to be a pink dog and a yellow cat on a light blue background.

Here's the yellow/pink square side. I used a new to me technique of disappearing 4 patches to piece this side. I posted photos of the technique here

Here's the dog/cat side. I enlarged pages from a coloring book for these images. I don't like the placement on the background fabric but I mis-measured and didn't realize it until too late.

Unfortunately Hayden informed me that I confused the colors of the dog and cat. The dog was supposed to be yellow and the cat pink! She figured I could just change it. I had to break it to her that it wasn't that easy.
