Birthday quilt

Not EVERYONE gets a quilt for their birthday at my house...
but tomorrow  a little girlie DOES! ;)

This quilt contains so much LOVE.
I Spy squares from blogland friends....
Strips of scraps from other quilting friends....
And lots of MOMMY love!

I had a hard time choosing a green for the binding...
so I just PICKED them ALL!!!


I also tried out some fancy quilting stitches.
I don't STRESS about the quilting when it's for my little one!


Since my stash is LOW on big pieces I have been
Piecing my quilt backs.
So gratifying to USE up what I HAVE! :)

Here is my quilt's new home.
READY to be cuddled.
Ready to comfort.
Ready to be SPIED!

I'm including this quilt in Amy's quilt festival!
A quilt show we can enjoy
right from our own HOMES!
Thank you for stopping by
and letting me share MINE with you!
