Blogger's Quilt Festival

I hesitated to join, but here I am...on the last day!
hosted by Amy at Park City Girl.

Here is my submission: The Fabulous at Forty Quilt I made for my sister Shauna's birthday in March.

I love it because it was my first big quilt finished, my first gift quilt, and because it was so fun to surprise her with it.


My 2 sisters and I flew to Shauna's house, without her having a clue, and surprised her for her 40th birthday. It was a great weekend! Good Times, good times... So, for that reason alone, this will remain one of my all-time favorites!

  11. I made my sister a quilt for her 40th and it was my first bed sized quilt. Though she picked the colors, the pattern choice was all mine, so that was my surprise to her. How fun that all you sisters got together for multiple surprises--love the quilt, it's charming and cozy. Thanks for sharing your quilt's story.
