More birthday celebrations


Remember these?  I started them back in February using the tutorial found here:http://magnoliabayquilts.blogspot.com/2010/01/string-blocks-tutorial.html

Actually, I don't need the tutorial anymore since this is the 3rd quilt I've made like this.

Yesterday was my first born's birthday.  She knows she's loved since I made the quilt for her.  She even said that...."I know I'm loved 'cause you made me a quilt". (the quilt is much darker than it appears in this picture).

Here she is with the fam.  At least part of them.  Gabe is away at Boy Scout camp and we sure do miss him.  Everyone except Timothy.  He's having a great time without his big brother.

Here's a close up of the all over quilting done by Loretta Rogers.

And here's a close up of the label I made for the quilt.  I got it sewn on about a half hour before Calista arrived at my house.  She and Chris went out to dinner without any kids.  Tim and I kept the little boys.  Timothy spent the night and we're off to have some fun today (which includes Target and the swimming pool in our neighborhood).  Hope you go have some fun, too!

I'm sure she knows you love her without the quilt...but I'm also sure she won't turn it down!

Cute family with the cute quilt.

It is a great pattern and looks like a fast pattern so that you could make 3.
It is lovely.
