    A quilt for our daughter's 23rd birthday.

    I am personally delivering this Quilt to her next Friday in Oklahoma City.

    The pattern is Country Threads Star quilt #428. I machine stitched the quilt top and hand tied I don't know how many little ties on it, but there's a lot. I machine stitched the binding to the back and hand sewed it on the front. The label is made on my embroidery machine and the flower and peace sign are applique patches I had laying around.

    I took a close up of the center so the colors would show up.

    Thank you very much for the compliments. It was an easy pattern to follow, the hard part was picking fabrics.

    Thank you very much.

    And I will relay all the messages to her. After she recovers from the bear hugs I will be giving her.
