    Last Thursday was my birthday. DH told me if I could wait until taxes came back for my gift, he had a surprise for me.
    Well tonight, I got the surprise! He took me to a LQS and told me to buy enough fabric and supplies for 4 quilts! Whoopee! Woof! Woof!

    I started looking and had a real problem settling for just 4! I did myself proud. I did however, forget to buy thread :oops:.

    Tell me what you think....All the colors are much brighter than they appear. C'mon spring!

    This is for the reqested quilt for DN, Pink, Orange, and Yellow were her colors.

    Interesting -- YOUR birthday gift was 3 sets of fabrics, but only one of those was really for YOU! Isn't it interesting that we consider fabric that we will make something from to give away as a gift!?! I know I do the same thing, so it must be having the opportunity to make something for someone else is the 'gift' we get. I didn't say that very well, but I hope you see what I mean.
