Yay, I Finished! Business in the Front, Party in the Back!!!


I'm so excited that I have finished my first "wordy" quilt ever!! It took a little playing to get it all together and quite a bit of improvisation! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I was going to make two house blocks for the front of the quilt - one of my friends house and one of mine because they are reversed colors--hers in white with purple trim and mine is purple with white trim....but alas I didn't have time. Her house became the focal point of the back of the quilt. I found a great Birthday fabric and a cupcake fabric that I just had to incorporate into the quilt because it's her 40th! I didn't want it screaming Birthday on the front but I was happy with it screaming on the back!! Ha...business in the front, party in the back....reminds me of my husband's hair in the 80's!!!!!
Happy 40th Birthday to my dearest friend, Cyndi!!


Ahhh....dreaming of spring!! Have a lovely day everyone!!
