So this week I'm going to play along and take a look at past posts for birthday's and borders.
In looking the blog archives, the only birthday post I could find was one for My Guy from last year. I had meant to blog about Drama Teen's birthday this year and didn't. Now that she's a "mature" young woman, she doesn't want sleep overs or birthday parties. Instead she's opted for a day of ice skating with a few friends.
I have action shots of the event, but they all ended up blurry. DT is in the blue jacket on the left. This was birthday number 15. How do they grow up so fast?
Now for the border part. When I discovered blogging, I didn't jump right into it my hosting my own blog. I started out writing posts over at Connecting Thread's "Quilt With Us" community. It seemed to be an easy way to dip my toe into the whole posting thing. I wasn't sure that I had that much to say. While I was part of that community, I participated in a BOM. I don't normally do pieced borders, but it made such a dramatic setting, I really wanted to make this one.
I've never blogged here about this quilt. It's one of my favorites. I love the blue and yellow color scheme and the border frames the blocks nicely. The pattern is by Amy Heaton and is available at Electric Quilt's My EQ Boutique. If you look up the pattern, you'll see my version as one of the examples at the bottom of the page.
