    I can't believe that my "youngest child" (the baby) just turned 30! How could that be possible? Time does fly, doesn't it.

    This quilt has been a long time in the making. She wanted something that looked "modern" and I don't know if I achieved that.

    The blue is the picture doesn't actually look that blue, it is softer more pastel. The backing is a gorgeous print flannel that matched perfectly!

    I wish I could report that I quilted it, too. Credit for that goes to Wendy at Eagle Mountain Quilting. She does beautiful work and is quite reasonable. (www.EagleMountainQuilting.com)

    Tomorrow is the day she gets her quilt and I hope she likes it!

    Absolutely beautiful!! The dot fabrics looks like Amy Butler. I love those! I used them on my daughters quilt also.

    You do great work!

    Awesome Job!
    I wish I had thought to finish the quilt I started when my dd was 15 for her 30th... maybe I can get it finished for her this year. She'll be happy whenever I get it finished :D

    as another "early 30's" girl...I say yes, modern and she will love it I'm sure! I like how crisp your name label/message is. Do you pen that?

    It is embroidered. I make a label on the computer using the font, size, etc. that I want and trace it on the fabric. I could never WRITE anything straight or print consistantly.......

    Thanks, I'm glad you think it looks modern.
