An Unbirthday Quilt

Whoa! It's summer here in the Relish household and with that comes lots of time to hang out with my girls and chaos - perfect! They will both be together again at school this coming fall and I am so excited for them. My youngest is going to be in Kindergarten! Most of you can understand the emotions involved with that one sentence. She graduated pre-school and turned 5 all in the same week as well and all those changes were very hard on both of us. When I realized how hard these changes were going to be, I suggested we have a big birthday party and she could invite all her friends. She said she wanted a party, but not a birthday party, except she did want gifts (priorities). I suggested a Very Merry Unbirthday party like on Alice in Wonderland (one of her favorite stories/movies especially the Johnny Dep version) and she said yes, as long as she could wear her Alice dress (her previous Halloween costume, of course). It was a great party to kickoff summer and celebrate her big achievements. For her birthday gift, I made her an Alice in Wonderland quilt and that's what brings be here today....

I used a free pattern from Tula Pink called From the Heart and it's basically machine appliqued hearts. I was a fun and fast quilt and perfect for my Rifle Paper Co./Cotton + Steel Wonderland fabric. I quilted sweet and simple rose motif using gold thread.

I've been super busy longarming the past few months that my personal projects have been very neglected. I have a few exciting events coming soon including talking to the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild, Teaching at StitchFest, and a pattern release. I am trying to get a lot of my quilt tops on the longarm so I am able to share with everyone so stay tuned!
