The Birthday Quilt


Ok--so older daughter decides she wants to make quilt for younger sister for her 25th birthday! But older daughter has never made a quilt--so she enlists Mom's help....but, of course, Mom is no expert! ;-)
so she also enlists the help of some expert quilter friends to sew about 1/2 the squares! (good move)
and older daughter does pick a fairly difficult pinwheel pattern--with alot of small triangles ! this was a big hush-hush surprise for her sister--so after several trips back and forth between Portland & Berkeley--first to shop for fabrics (what fun!), then to cut out pieces, then to sew...we finished the quilt! so here it is....
