"Birthday Quilt" by Dawn S.

This is the quilt I made for my granddaughter's third birthday.  She loves it!  My daughter and I picked out the fabrics and while we were putting it together, we were both worried it wouldn't look good, but didn't mention that to each other!  But it turned out great!  I hand quilted it . . . I am still learning to do that . . . but want to hand quilt, just think that is one thing that I would like to keep going.  It took a little over a year to make.  I know the pattern was in one of Fons and Porters, just not sure of the month and date . . .    :-)
