Prayer garden quilt and my birthday

I finally finished Prayer Garden!! yay….

I did a SITD on the white parts of the blocks, as the border sections were very thick and stiff.

And did a scrappy binding

The backing I used a floral fabric that I don’t really “love” also made a hanging sleeve which I sewed to the top while adding the binding

I also add my label while attaching the binding now so I only hand sew the 2 sides down!

I used one of the flower blocks and ignored the added fabric strips but instead did the text close to the flower.

Today is my birthday!!

I’m close to having been living half my life in the US vs Denmark now, kind of strange… I moved to the US when I was 18 1/2 to go to college for 2yrs and then met a guy and well, you can guess the rest…

So technically my NEXT birthday, I’ve been here more than half my life – did you figure out my age??? LOL

Our friend From Singapore is back and brought presents and candy

Look at these nice Batiks (like the blue one I got last year)

(of course I asked my HUSBAND when he did the modeling for the bag!?- aren’t I the good wife?? Winking smile LOL )

Happy Birthday and I love the Prayer Garden. I too am working on embroidering my blocks for the Prayer Garden. Someday I will get mine finished

Happy Birthday Girl! Now it makes sense to me why we get along, even if via email only. We share the same birth month. My birthday was just 10 days ago and my twins' birthdays was 5 days ago. :) I hope you had a great day.

Lori said...

Hope you had a wonderful birthday. It is so much fun watching Sonja grow up. those posters are so funny

Nancy said...

Happy Birthday!
I think the Prayer Garden quilt is lovely, especially with the coloring you did. Sonja's is just the cutest.
I was able to tell my husband that he has been a part of my life the same amount of time I was single. You will be able to say that some day, too. (Or can you already?)

Sheila said...

Your quilt is just beautiful. Happy Belated Birthday! As usual, I'm late to the party. Congrats on all the goodies. And Sonya is so like her mom and she will be quilting for real before you know it.
