    It really was fun... however ..... I started out trying o match fabrics to the * age..(for example row 4 ( age 4 ) has a selvage edge that says [lullabies]. At 19 there is roses fabric ( she got engaged) and 20 is wedding fabric ( married ) then gave up on that idea since i was rushed for this quilt. I decided to do this 3 weeks before her birhday and I was leaving town and it has to be mailed to canada before i left. CAn you relate ? LOL I started pulling fabric off the shelves and it became a flurry of fabric flying everywhere as I just needed a one inch strip of each. In time I had every pieces of fabric off the shelf and on the floor.. picture a 4 ft wide pile of fabric...:) on the floor. Good news is I got to refold them all the next day and it is organized now. !!My mom really loves the quilt.

    Yes it sure could and if you had more time it could be totally personalized. I made one for my grand daughter ( 1 ) that was from the pattern in Mccalls magazine. I think I posted it if not here it is. The quilt matched the beautiful cake her mother made.. in terms of color and flowers and butterflies.

    This is the birthday quilt I made last October for paytons 1st.. tried to go with the colors of the cake that my daughter made for her. This is her first fondant cake i think she did fabulous !! It took hours .. many layers and she made an individual small one for P as well. The quilt is entered in a contest on the Mc calls quilt web site at this moment.

    Oh! I LOVE that idea! If you did it on a "blank" background (as you did with the white), you could start it for a child and let them pick a new fabric to add each year!
    Yours is beautiful! Bet Mom is so proud :mrgreen:
