Happy Birthday by Eric Carle......


We've been looking at this Eric Carle Very Hungry Caterpillar Happy Birthday panel trying to figure something good to do with it.  I think I showed you a Happy Birthday runner Jan made using the stripe you see on the border of this.  There was a cute pattern at the Andover website, but it was more than what we wanted to do.  Well.....it finally came to us!  Sew....we came up with this.  What do you think?  It's pretty doggone simple, but effective.  Jan put it together and Tracey quilted it and I sewed the binding on.  Don't you just love teamwork Fabette style?!?  I'll get the measurements together for you in case you're interested in doing this.  Our Miss Ellie will turn 2 later this month....this would be a fun thing to have for just such an occasion, don't you think?

How has your week been?  Things have been hopping over at Fab-Etc!  We had our monthly Tea Party Wednesday with lots of laughs, scones and good times.  I managed to finish the top of the Urban Abacus pattern and got the hexagon quilt to a stage where I could take it home to the design wall here and try to get the last couple of rows together!  HOORAY!!  Today, I started a birthday present for the aforementioned Ellie.  I'll show it to you when I get it done....think it's safe, since I don't think she's reading Grandma Carol's blog yet  =)

Jan's working on a runner that came as a *bonus* insert with the latest American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  It's going to be a winner!  Speaking of the magazine, Sharon's class at the end of the month is full already....the one with the quilt I showed you the other day.  And tomorrow, Diane's Beginning Quilting class will have their layering lesson ~ they are almost done and are doing such good work!!

Okay....some paperwork to do and then I think I may just put my feet up for a bit....hope you have a lovely evening!
