It's Birthday Time

Several months ago Judy Laquidara gave a talk at my quilt guild. A few weeks before the meeting, she sent us clues to a mystery quilt that we could have pieced by the time we went to the meeting minus the borders. I used some fabric I had bought a couple of years earlier and could never find the right pattern to go with it. Now I'm not much for greens but since it was a mystery, I thought I might not like it anyway so it wasn't a big loss. When I finally got the top pieced, my daughter loved the quilt and it was just her color preference. She tried to talk me out of it a few times. Since her birthday is July 7, I decided it would make a good gift for her. I just finished quilting it up today and have a few days to get the binding on. I really love the pattern and will probably make one for me out of different colors.
