    Howdy y'all :c)

    I got the quilt I made for my daughter's teacher completely finished. She was absolutely THRILLED with it! I had put seven blocks in there that had the "Children of the Week" poem on them. She told me that her daughter was born via a prescheduled C-section, and she had used that poem to choose which day she wanted her daughter to be born on! I somehow managed to pick her favorite color for the backing as well. It worked out even better than I had intended! :c)

    Here is the finished quilt.

    Here are the labels I made using my sister's Janome embroidery machine.

    Thanks Brandy! I'm from Central KY, near Lexington. My parents were from Eastern KY though. And as far as I know, we were NOT related to the Hatfields! LOL!
