Blended Babes Birthday!
Back row, left to right: Shirlee, Carol, Carolyn, Vicky
Seated: Quiltgranny Sharon, Ibby
Today was the first birthday stitch day of the year for Amazing Quilt Babe Carol (the tallest and youngest one of our group). For a reminder of how this works, check this blog entry, or this one about *my* birthday quilt from last year.
Carol had already made the little centers for this blended quilt, and had all the pieces for each block cut when she arrived about 9AM today. She and Shirlee (left, standing) had chosen the fabrics together last week, and I think they did a marvelous job! So we basically pieced 64 blocks that were like courthouse steps. The quilt pieces behind the group in the picture were all completed by noon, when Carolyn. The remaining 5 of us had lunch, talked about a couple of projects, and then sewed all the rows together. I think the centers will show up better if the picture is clicked for an enlarged view.
Voila! Happy Birthday, Carol!
