Mom's quilt



I finished my mother-in-law's birthday quilt on Tuesday. Her birthday is the 4th of July!!! We always get together at my sister-in-law's house on the fourth for a BBQ and fireworks. It is also my MIL and my nephews birthdays so we have a cake for them and presents. She is turning 80 this year. She loves owl things. This was made with a panel and charm square pack and extra half yard for border and binding.

The grandkids came today for a sleepover. It is always fun to have them over. Exhausting but fun! We watercolored pictures we drew and played games on the computer. Grandpa has tomorrow off so they will be playing outside with him. I don't do heat very well so will stay in. It is supposed to be 100 degrees tomorrow and the 4th!! Yikes that is hot!

This quilt is awesome! What a great job. Did you quilt it yourself? That seems to be the biggest problem for me. I can't find the time to quilt them.
