Woohoo!!

Last night I finished my Little Bluebirds quilt! I just LOVE it! I finished it after Tassy had gone to bed and put it over her so she'd find it in the morning. But she got up this morning in the dark and didn't notice it. So I said "come with me" and lead her back into her and told her to turn on the light. She gasped and gave me a big hug and said "I love it!". Great reaction! :D

Thanks for your help Janelle, and for designing such a beautiful quilt! And thanks for your help with some stitching MUM!

Get ready for a photo overload (the light wasn't ideal so the photos aren't all great). Here it is on Tassy's bed. It's bigger than I expected so fits on her bed quite nicely.Here's the back. Looks good from a distance (not as good up close lol).And some closeups...
