Today is...


...my Birthday! And this lovely *just cut* fabric is going to be OUR quilt! Every 29 year old quilter needs her own quilt, right? To have and to hold, and to live on our couch... to cozy up under for the winter... and to admire its crinkly goodness. Yes, it's not much yet, but as soon as my sewing schedule lightens up, this baby is next! I'm following the lovely directions of Dana from Old Red Barn Co. and the Quilt-Along (directions start here) she held back in May/June. A tad late, but who cares.

These fabrics are gorgeous, and I am jealous, and WHAT ARE THEY!?!? I LOVE the color palette, and Yes, you should have your own quilt. It was a year before I made a quilt for "us" and Now I have gotten quilt-greedy and am working on two more. Never can have enough, though, I guess. Good luck! What pattern are you going to use?

Lauren said...

Oh wait! And Happy Birthday!

Thanks guys!

AND its fabric from the Darcey Collection (mostly) by Anna Griffin.
I bought it on Etsy a few months back. Cheers!

Happy Birthday! You seem to have a wonderful life! Your artwork is fascinating....the quilt photos were nearly as impressive as the unbelievably cute puppy pictures! Hope you'll have a healthy & happy baby soon.

Happy Birthday Cristin! Love the colours and prints on the fabric. Everyone should have their own quilt... or four. Ahem.

Happy Birthday!!!
Love this fabric! I just made a quilt with Dana's pattern except to accomodate the fabric I chose I made the strips a bit wider. I really enjoyed making it and love the outcome.
