Latest project finished and Sarah's 3rd birthday

This is the project that I have been working on for the last couple of months.  My mother in law, husband and myself picked this pattern and then we went and bought the material.  I had never worked on a quilt like this before.  All the quilts I had done to this point were blocks sewn together.  This quilt was very different.  It was one square in the center and then I just sewed a little more on to make a larger square.  It was a lot of fun.  I then free motion stitched it.  I did better on this quilt than I have on any of them so far.  You know what they say "Practice makes perfect."
I bought a sheet set at walmart and used the straight sheet for the back of the quilt.  I have a few things left that I want to do to the pillowcases as well.

So now that their quilt is finished I will miss working on this quilt but I will move on to the table runners that I have planned. 

We also celebrated my daughters birthday a little early.  After the wedding on Saturday we got together with our family and opened some of her gifts.

She received some very cute clothing.  She also got some fun musical books.  Sunday after we finally made it home after two flights we opened a couple more presents sent from other family members.  It was good to see family.  We really miss them.
