I’ve mentioned before about our tradition of swapping doll quilts on birthdays. Half the fun is the anticipation, knowing exactly what the gift will be, yet trying to guess which pattern and fabrics Barb will surprise me with.
This year’s quilt is a Courthouse Steps Log Cabin, made from double pinks and shirting prints that both Barb and I love.
The pastel fabrics and very feminine look make it a unique addition to my collection of little quilts. I just love it!
Each little log measures ¾”.
Of course, there’s always a surprise on the back of the quilt too. This time it‘s Parisian advertising labels ~ so pretty!
There were birthday treats from other friends as well. Terri baked a tray of mini cupcakes, using this classic Chicago restaurant recipe. They were moist, light, and way too easy to pop into your mouth whole. Kathy delivered a delicious comfort food dinner, and when Linda visited a few days later, she couldn't have known that the peppermint ice cream she brought would be used as a prop in a photo shoot (or that she‘d be enlisted as photographer).
