I decided to make her a quilt for her 30th birthday but it was to be a surprise. I chose the colours that were in her lounge suite. I was very clever choosing the colours because I went to the furniture store where she had bought the lounge suite with my fabric swatches and matched the colour that way.

Here is the blog post I wrote last year when I was busy making it. It became so hectic and I was secretly sewing whenever I got the chance that at one stage I thought I wouldn't get it finished it time.
I didn't quilt it really heavily because I wanted it to remain soft so she could use it as a cuddly lap quilt. Even so the quilting still took ages.
It was all so rushed that I forgot to take a photo of it finished. I just have the photo of her when she received it.

This is the label I put on the back, she really loved the label.
I was originally going to make her a crazy quilt with photos of her and school badges etc etc, but I was running out of time and I was worried that it wouldn't look very nice. But she was so thrilled with the label maybe I should have. Maybe I should start now for her 40th!!
Bye for now,
