    Well, GGD Sara has been taking her Mom's quilt (that I made her) and asking to keep it in her room for 3 days, then back to her mother's room for 3 days. I thought that was a sign that for her 8th birthday, she would have a quilt from me. Here it is, bound and labeled last night, in the washer, and headed to MD tomorrow!!

    PS Our Landrum SC guild had a layer cake swap, by color each month. This was made out of those 10" blocks!!

    I LOVE it!!!! That is so colorful :thumbup:. How about some pictures of her with it when she gets it. A Disappearing Nine Patch is on my list of quilts that I want to make.

    Last year I sent her a quilted jacket, which she opened three days before her birthday. She explained to me that since I sent the package, she just knew it had to be something "Beautiful" and she just couldn't stand to wait until her birthday to see what it was. She wore it to school every day this past year that did not require snow gear!!

    Minnie wanted to see the back of the quilt and the label. I did a flip the back over the front instead of strip binding. I did the meandering on my little Husqvarna Freesia 400
