Happy Birthday Dale!

This was my idea for 60 memories
I like it except some of the writing may be small
but it had to fit in the frame
if I did it again I would get a 16x20 frame
and have Staples print it out  but I think she will like it

it has childhood memories of playing beauty pageant on the
sidewalk with rose petals
skating on the pond
taking a trip to a fav restaurant for strawberry daiquiris
having a Halloween party in the greenhouse
fun fun fun to walk down memory lane!

this is the quilt
DONE and in the wash as we speak
even hubs liked this one and he usually
says "too busy or too much color"
but he liked it
I hope she likes it
it looks so cute with the cat pillows too
I backed it in a busy print that has been here forever
and bound it in the hot pink for fun
the quilting was simple wavy lines side to side across
the quilt
I am not a master at wrangling quilts in a
small throated machine LOL

I think it was a winner and I am so so happy this panel
and these scrappy blocks will find a new home!
 I may need to look at UFO blocks differently
from now on.......

of course as I was sewing this, I had two blocks left over
AND as leader enders another four got made

thats more blocks to play with another day right?
