I participated in the Old Red Barn Quilt a Long earlier this year, but I couldn't blog about it. I was making my quilt as a Birthday present for my sweet little sister! Well Finally her Birthday has arrived and I can talk about this wonderful quilt a long!

I was so excited to actually make a full size quilt from start to finish! I usually make baby quilts, so this was huge!!! It fit my daughters full size bed. Dana was such a great teacher too! She took us step by step through the process. I will show the quilt finished with binding tomorrow (I still have to upload those pics). I used vintage sheets from my collection and I LOVE the way it all came together! I think I need to make myself one.

*Happy 32nd Birthday to the most wonderful little sister anyone could EVER have! I Love you NEALIE!

This quilt is amazing! I participated in your sheet swap last year (has it been that long?). I still love pulling out the goodies I received, and try to post my creations in your flickr group. I hope you add this quilt picture to the flickr group! Thanks again for organizing that amazing swap.
