A birthday present for Sandra

Yesterday was my daughters birthday, we won't talk about age, but I don't know when my children's age caught up with mine.
Sandra is a Literary Agent, and works from her home office. She has created this great environment to work in, I don't know how she gets anything done, I would be staring out the window all day.
This is the view from her desk of her front yard,
with the window open you can hear the water bubbling in the stream.

This was a kit I made while working at the quilt shop, when I saw it I knew I had to make it for Sandra's office.
I only had the top done when the shop closed so it has been on the UFO list for awhile.

I woke up one morning last week and realized it was almost Sandra's birthday with the quilt unfinished.

With minimal quilting I was able to finish it in time to get it in the mail so it arrived on her birthday.

She called yesterday after recieving it to tell me she had the perfect place for it in her office. Happy Birthday Sandra.

Happy Quilting!


  1. Love the quilt, what a neat way to dress up motif blocks! I've been working on one that has cardinals and I'm doing a simple 9-patch in the other blocks. Keep watching for the next couple of years and I'll post a picture of it when it's done. Ha

  2. What a wonderfull gift for your daughter, she will love it,
    the colours are smashing.
    Happy birthday to your daughter.

  3. What a beautiful view from your daughter's home office. I would love to hear the water....how peaceful. The little quilt is gorgeous!!! I hope she had a wonderful birthday!!!
