birthday quilt

This quilt was made from the leftover scraps of last fall's cap project. I love the texture juxtaposition of so many denims and corduroys. The back and border are a sarong I bought in Thailand seven years ago.

The barn swallow appliques are from a vintage tablecloth. After all that piecework I got sick of driving the heavy duty thread and heavy duty needles through my heavy duty quilt. Good thing my 1940's White is a heavy duty stitchhorse! I only made it do minimal quilting and tied the rest!

Now it's all ready to celebrate, warm up, cuddle, stroll, and make forts! (So are we!)
