Project 365: 362/365 Birthday Quilt

I finally finished it!  I finished my birthday quilt.  You may remember that at my birthday party I had my friends write me messages onto patchwork squares.  I also took photos from the photobooth at my party and incorporated them into the quilt.  Well, I finally finished it.  It’s huge and I love it!  I’ve been using it to keep me warm since it’s become so cold here.  The front and back are both pictured here.  I used Elizabeth Hartman’s Small Plates design.

Project 365: 301/365 The Birthday Quilt Quilted

I’ve been working on this birthday quilt since before my actual birthday.  Slowly, but surely I am making progress.  As of this photo I had finally finished quilting the quilt.  I followed Elizabeth Hartman’s recommendation when doing straight line quilting.  Instead of sewing around the edges of each patch, so sew a quarter inch from the edge on each side.  I really liked how this technique turned out.
