Birthday quilt!

Here's my latest finish! It's a red and white birthday quilt for my middle niece, Karen! At Christmas she was hinting strongly that she would love a quilt...so Auntie Robin made it happen! I will not be giving it to her in person, as she lives several states away in NH, so when I get a pic of her with the quilt I'll post that as well.


Boy, it's nice to finish something bigger than a breadbox for a change LOL I really need to get moving on my UFO Challenge list though! I think my recent visit with my 2 quilt-crazy BFFs, Michelle and Peg, has given me some extra momentum so I intend to put it to good use!!

Hey! Is that Rectangle Revery from Happy Zombie? I started one in thirties prints and it's ON my UFO list. I started it with a bang, the same day I got the magazine, but now the rows are hanging forlornly over the back of a chair. For quite some time... Anyway, yours is lovely and now I am inspired! : )

Red and white is my all time favorite color combo, and I love what you've done with this quilt! What a lucky niece. I love the red and white "dashes" running through the quilt. Fun pattern and great color!
