Rounds of Birthday Love

Last weekend, our Sew Sisters gathered for sewing, eating, and good times. That is the best of all possible worlds in my book. We also had a very special gift to present. Ronda's Big 50. For the past year or more each of us, or in small groups, have pondered and planned growth of the quilt that was to surround the amazing applique of Marsha's center basket block.

Nothing planned in advance. Only the big box of batiks scraps and a few large pieces of repeat fabric. Here is the final result. Full of darling paper pieced blocks, log cabins, flying geese, and applique. On to the great reveal!

It's just spectacular. I wish you could hold it! She always said she wanted a black cat on her 50th bday quilt. Her wish ended up on the Friendship Star Label.

And sweet Debi made a matching pillow to go with.

Here are some other wonderful quilty photos of finished quilts and works in progress.

We always enjoy our time together, but this particular weekend was just very special. And we were even joined by the newest little gal, Taylor...she can't decide, pink or turquoise?

Go ahead sweetie--get 3 yards of each! Love you Sew Sisters!


  1. I LOVE the way her quilt turned out AND the black cat on the label. The other show & tell was gorgeous, too!
