Birthday Quilt

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Our family decided to give only handmade gifts to each other on our birthdays, so this will be my gift for Odessa. I wanted to give myself lots of time since Christmas falls right in between then and now, so I got started on it this weekend. I had purchased this fabric a while ago and was saving it to make something extra special, and I found the perfect pattern in a quilt book my grandmother gave me from the '70s. The color combination and prints remind me so much of Odessa; very fun and cheerful, yet delicate. I've decided I'm going to have to get it professionally quilted though, since I don't think my sewing machine can handle one this size.

Odessa always gets excited when she sees a quilt now. She likes to sit on my lap while I'm using the sewing machine and "help". This "helping" usually lasts for about four minutes and then she gets all squirmy and wants to get down, but it is really sweet.
