December Birthday

 My Jaycee Lou turned 17 today.  I can't believe my baby is that old.  Doesn't seem like that long ago I was holding her in the hospital....relieved to have her here safe and sound.  Not any easy pregnancy at all. I feel bad that she has a December birthday.  We try to do some birthday decorations around the Christmas decorations.
 This is my sister's Christmas quilt (Tracy).  She's had is done since summer...but I just got around to quilting it.  I love the fabrics.
 I tried a new quilting design.  I saw something similar over at Green Fairy Quilts.  I've mentioned in previous posts about how much I love her quilting style.  Here's my version.  I'm really, really pleased with how it turned out.  I've been drawing it for a month or so and got brave enough to try it.  Glad my sisters let me practice on their quilts....ha ha!
 I can't wait to do it again.  I love it....just love the swirls and echoing.

Hope JayCee had a good birthday!!

Tracy's quilt is beautiful. You did such a great job with the quilting - it makes the quilt.
