It's a Birthday Month!

John and I on our honeymoon 18 1/2 yrs ago!!

Happy Birthday to my husband John, my son Mike and my stepdaughter Christy! I'm so proud of you all and thankful for you in my life!

And what a birthday month it is!  Someone is turning the Big 4-0 this year, and I don't think it's my husband!!! lol!!  We are celebrating with a fun poker/birthday party on Friday night for John. 

My son Mike, and his lovely bride Deanna

Mike has the best birthday present of all- a new baby is on the way, due the end of June.  Grandma can't wait!!
Christy and my oldest grandson Justin!
 And my beautiful stepdaughter, Christy, who gave me my first 4 grandchildren has a great day planned with friends and a fun trip.
Congrats to all of you!!  Wish I could be with ALL of you! 

I've also been working hard on new quilts and new fabrics not yet out in the stores.  They are pretty cool lines and I'm having a ball working with them.  Here are just a couple of sneak peaks!!
This is a Benartex line called Floralicious and the colors are so much fun, I just had to make a fun design with butterfly appliques and easy blocks in a horizontal row setting.  It goes on the long arm machine today!
This is a new quilt I designed using the House and Home fabrics by Benartex.  You can tell that spring is what we are working on now!  One way to beat those wintertime blues!!  I'm honing up my longarm skills and really enjoying a new way to fill in the background of appliques. 

It's a fun line, with a border print.  I have more coming so stay tuned for the next two quilts going out this week.  Never a dull moment here at Peddlecar Quilts!!  Enjoy your week, and keep quilting!!!
