A special birthday quilt for a special birthday girl!

For Reagan's birthday in January, my friend Sara made her a birthday quilt
I decided since my girls share a bedroom, that I SHOULD make Elsa a quilt too. I wanted it to be similar but not matchy-matchy. My daughters are two distinctly different little personalities, it doesn't make sense for everything to match.
Colors that remind me of Elsa....

Elsa is sunny. Happy. Friendly. Playful.

I thought a yellow, orange and pink combo would suit her well.

And luckily, Sara had saved the instructions for the quilt she had made Reagan and was happy to fork them over to me. :) (or at least I think she was......)

I had A LOT of yellow and pink fabric. Orange? Well, we all know how hard it is to find a good orange fabric.

So here is my creation, I'm calling it "Citrus Summer"

Oh, and by the way, this would be my first time free hand quilting. Boy is it tiring! But I got the hang of it, and can't wait to do it again!

And I made this little tag for the quilt to mark the occasion. :)

This was such a fun quilt to do! Especially knowing it was for my little stinker.

For her and her Daddy's birthday, we are renting an RV and going camping! So, *SHHHHHH* She hasn't seen it yet! ;)
Until next time,
