happy birthday Alicia.
and because this blog is meant to be about quilting here is a short history of some of the quilts I've made for my special girl.
1992 - shadow applique - a re-do of my first quilt (made for my niece), Ali's first quilt.
1995 - School House - applliqued because I didn't know better, quilted with the alphabet, because she was 3.
1995 - Country phase - love how the overlapping hearts form a star - went crazy with the quilting. She was 7 and she loved the ladybug.
2002 - 10 years old and dog obsessed - vintage embroidered doggie blocks.
2005 - 13 and still dog obsessed - bright and utilitarian - flourescent doggies are on the back
There are more, but she's asleep and they are in her room. Perhaps for another post.
Hug your children at every possible opportunity, they are such treasures.
what a sooky mum I am.
