Tee Dah!

That is what my niece would say instead of "tah dah", when she was a tot. Well, she will be Sweet 16 tomorrow and I am nearly finished with her gift. I just have to stitch down the bottom of the hanging sleeve and add my label.

Even though there are flaws, (such as crooked stitching and crooked books) I am pleased with the outcome. Hey, I have a stigmatism and nothing is ever straight, so it makes this gift "more me". Well anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL This is the very first "artsy" quilt I have ever made and it will not be the last. It was tons of fun! Without further ado......

                                           "A Few of My Favortie Things"
        (That's what I am calling it, as the book titles are the things that she loves at this point on her life.)

 Yes, it is tacked to my bulletin board at work!
 A closer pic of the details. Still needs to be pressed one more time.....
and the patchy back........I think she will love and cherish it.

Sorry for the poor lighting and photo quality. A girl can only do so much with her cell phone camera, on the last few minutes of her lunch hour in her stuffy, windowless office.

Have a wonderful afternoon!

Blogger is giving me such a hard time commenting!

I just wanted to say that I LOVE this quilt and that nieces are da bomb-but you already knew that!

Sunny wishes from Crete!
