since last time…

I’ve celebrated a birthday – a friend gave me this yummy cupcake, which I DID NOT share despite some suggestions otherwise…

and I finished my Fab Little Quilt Swap mini – though it was supposed to be mailed Friday.  I hope my partner won’t mind that it’s a few days late.  I know she’s waiting… and I’m waiting to see if she’ll like it.  That’s the best and the worst part of making quilts for other people!  :-)

my partner likes the low-volume trend, Denyse Schmidt, Heather Ross and plus quilts (which, I think, also goes with her spirituality).  we had both liked this block from Live a Colorful Life, which obviously inspired the middle of my FLiQS.  I was concerned about the color scheme, but it matches something new to her home, which she raved about, so I’m hopeful that this will be a happy addition to her mini collection.

  2. Happy Birthday!
    And I strongly suspect this is not my quilt -- so sad, because I LOVE it! Great job!

  3. Happy birthday! If your partner doesn't like the quilt then she can send it right on over to me! I adore it! :)
