Ada's Birthday Quilt (05/11)
This is actually my very first quilt.  The 1st one I started.  The fabric is all Michael Miller, so at least I had that going for me.  This was the 3rd quilt I quilted, and the 1st I did on a long arm.

Willa's Birthday Quilt(01/24/11)

Willa's owl quilt.

I could've have gotten the green part even with the top if I had tried.  It's so weird that it worked out perfectly.  I did run out of binding, so I had to add a little scrap of backing I had left over.

Pattern: Disappearing Nine Patch
Quilting: stippling
Thread: off-brand
Fabric: Some stuff I picked up at JoAnns

No picture of the back, but the backing is the same as the setting squares
