Happy Birthday Susan!



Today is Susan's birthday! She lives in Washington state where the strawberries have just come on and so her daughter is making her a Strawberry dessert today! With all my heart I wish I could be there with her and her family.



Based on the colors in their home I created this gift for Susan.



I am not set up to photograph such a large piece so the picture is not very pretty but you can get the idea anyway.  Maybe Susan will take a shot of this hanging on her wall and post it (hint hint) : )



I used the "Quilted" series from Papertrey Ink for my quilt blocks and framed them in a plain frame from Michael's.  I chose this frame because of the double matting.  The top mat is raised so that I was able to layer foam under each quilt block and not be smushed under the glass.  The frame is black and the mat a brilliant white not gray like it looks in the picture.

I know this is a bit tacky to talk about price but I have already shared my great find with Susan so I can share with you too.  This frame cost less than $20.00 when I used a 40% off coupon at Michaels! Isn't that amazing!?!

Before I go I have another sister, Beverly, who also has a May birthday.  I forgot to post this funny plaque I found in a FEED STORE! LOL and sent to her.  I thought it was so funny I didn't want to fail to share it with all of you.



Please join me in wishing my sweet sister a very very happy birthday!!

I will be adding my projects to:

Have a great day!

Patti, my birthday is in July!! ;0) haha! I just adore this! My mother would have especially loved this as she was an amazing quilter. I am so blessed to have a few of her quilted creations and each one is a cherished gift. I'm sure both your sisters loved their gifts. You're so thoughtful and creative!!

Jeanne said...

What a beautiful card and quilt wall hanging! The colors are amazing. Wow! And I've got to say as well, that strawberry dessert photo almost has me salivating, it looks so delicious. I really like how to added to the quilt square on the card with the flower sprig and the gems. And it looks like you decorated the inside, too! Something I need to do more of. I'm not proud, I'm glad you shared the great value you found in framing this piece. Sometimes those costs can be a detriment to finishing up a project, so thanks for that from me. :) And that second piece you found for your other sister is fabulous as well. Gotta love some great humor! :) Have a great day. I'm sure your sisters did when they received these items.

Yummy! This is for both the card, plaque and the dessert. I sure hope Susan has a wonderful day and I am sure the celebration will be much better due to the great dessert and the wonderful design you made for her.

I've never been a quilter but envy those who are. Your wall collage is just stunning, Patti! I'll bet Susan was impressed with her gift and gorgeous matching card. The plaque you found is hilarious but so true. I'll have to pop over to Susan's blog to wish her a belated happy birthday.
