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:
