Valentine's Love.....

It was this day 22 years ago that a very special little girl came into our lives....
we welcomed, our second daughter, sweet Maggie into the world....
Happy Birthday, Maggie!

  
I had three girls in about 3 1/2 years.....it was a lot of fun!  They are wonderful friends and have a lot of fun together.  I do miss the endless hours of Barbie! 
  
And for some quilty LOVE....
I want to share with you some pictures from our quilt class last night....
the quilts are simply amazing works in progress!
What a talented bunch!


 How adorable is this Penguin and Fish fabric!  Rita's quilt is on-point with lots of bright color and spots!!!


Jennifer is working on a wonderful log cabin!  Very sophisticated and perfect as a wall hanging for her home. 


Jenny is working on a bow-tie quilt....just fantastic....even a mini!!!


Next up....


Felisha's wonky log cabin!  No borders yet in this pic, but this is for a new big girl bed!
Isn't it sweet?


Peggy was working on her quilt when I took the picture, but you can see what a vibrant quilt this will be.  And to top it off she will be trimming it in a border of red corduroy!  How perfect is that?
It warms my heart that they have all decided to hand quilt their quilts - so in a couple of weeks I will bring you a new set of quilted pictures!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Birthday to your daughter Maggie. I too had 3 daughters, though a bit further apart in age. And my youngest will be turning 23 in May. The quilts are so cute, looks like a great class.

Very belated Happy Birthday to your daughter.....3 girls in 3 1/2 years - wow! I'm impressed, I bet you had a busy few years ;) I am 18 months younger than my sister, we are good friends now but it was a rocky relationship from about 5 - 17 years old. Bethx
