my creative space :: a long awaited birthday quilt

A long long time ago a pink quilt was begun for a then just five-year old, pink-obsessed girl.

For some reason that seemed to make perfect sense to the mother of said pink-obsessed five-year old girl at the time, the decision was made to hand quilt this KING single sized quilt.

And so almost a year later the quilt was finally finished just hours before the pink-bordering-on-purple-obsessed five-year old girl turned six, and was placed on her sleeping self to find in the
morning.

And then it was forgotten when the  pink (and purple) cupcakes appeared.

  10. What a gorgeous and very lucky big six year old birthday girl. The quilt is divine but I reckon the best birthday prezzy of all is that she gets to keep her own birthday to herself. xx Thanks heaps for your message lovely, it meant a lot.
