star flower top!

I just can't wait to show this off!

It's a finished top!

It's for Christmas, so I have some time to get it quilted.

I absolutely love it.
(Can I keep it?!)

I also pieced some extra of the little flower strips (all I had left!) to get a cuff on a matching pillowcase.

This will be for her 7th birthday in early November.  She won't know it coordinates until Christmas, though.

Yesterday I went to hang out with my mom, so I got the quilt photo, along with two others that have been added to my "parade of tops" page.  They have a balcony that works great for quilt photos, though yesterday the lighting was a bit wacky - outside!  (Maybe it's my camera?)

We visited all sorts of fun places: scrapbooking outlet (I need to get back to scrapbooking my quilts!), quilt shop, JoAnn Fabrics, Hobby Lobby and of course lunch!  It was a fun day, though most of what I bought were pages for my scrapbook efforts and big packages of batting, so nothing fun to show.

Happy quilting,

The quilt top is gorgeous! The little girl will love the pillow case, even more so when she gets the quilt too! You have so many great quilts; I could look at them for hours! ---"Love"

Your niece is going to be so thrilled! That is a gorgeous quilt that will grow with her for years. You are doing a wonderful job on it. I enjoyed your parade of tops, you have some beautiful tops to finish into quilts. Sounds like you had a great day with your Mom, too!
