A Birthday Quilt

Thursday was Coleen's birthday! I'm a little late posting about it - but I made her a quilt for her big 4-0!

She doesn't looks a day over 21 though :)

I gave it to her on Friday at her birthday bash thrown by her lovely sister and one of her oldest friends.

I am the luckiest 21 year old girl EVER. Not only did I get this breathtaking quilt for my birthday, I also have you as my friend. I love you girl! Thank you soooo much. I can't tell you how touched I am.

That turned out really great. I got that book recently, but haven't had a chance to really make anything from it.
