Tomorrow is my 36th birthday!
Earlier this year, Amanda Jean from Crazy Mom Quilts had a quilt-along. She was making a 36-patch quilt because she was turning 36 this year. I had never participated in a quilt-along but thought this would be so much fun. I decided to join her and all the others in this 36-patch quilt-along. My goals were to make a quilt "just for me!" and to finish it before my birthday.
I did it!!
I used some orange fat-quarters that my mom had given me a few years ago (my favorite color!), and paired them up with some Ricky Tims Convergence fabrics.
It is the very first quilt I quilt myself on the long-arm.
I used a pantograph pattern called Halcyon.
As I have mentioned here, I am a perfectionist. I must say though that I am quite happy with the finished product. The more I look at it, the happier I am, and proud to say that I made it ALL myself!
I am happy to say this is MY quilt!
Someone decided to help me take pictures!
I am linking up to TGIFF! Please head over to Life Under Quilts to see some other great finishes on this last Friday of 2011!
