Tiffany's 21st Birthday

DSC_0891-1

All dressed and ready to go out to Portland. From left to right: Jen, Courtney, Tiffany, Colin, Me, and Christina. Of course Colin stayed home with dad while the girls went out. We had a great time and believe it or not no one vomited. I will say that the next morning, after very little sleep, I felt my age. I think I have finally caught up on the loss of sleep. We went to Henry's for dinner and drinks and then went to McFadden's for some more drinks and dancing. We left around 1:30 when I realized that the entire front entrance was lined with police officers. Some of the girl's were not ready to leave but I thought that if there were ever a sign that we shouldn't be there that was it.

With age comes responsibility- I feel old :)

Do you remember this picture?

I made Tiffany a lap quilt from this pattern Mixtape, I used the Favorite Songs pattern.

The quilt materials are:

Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market, blocks and binding

Kona cotton in Eggplant for the sashing and back.

The quilt was quilted by Christina. She did an amazing job. Thank you Christina.

As far as the finished size of the quilt, I am not entirely sure. I know it is smaller then the patterns finished size dimensions. I did a lot of squaring up. And I was amazed at how much it shrank after being washed and dried. More pictures here. I think Tiffany liked it, I know she was surprised by it.

xo,

I love the binding on it. Perfect contrast to the eggplant.
