Have you heard of Golden Birthdays?

It's when your age is the same as your birthday date. My niece was 27 on the 27th, so that was her golden birthday, something she's been looking forward to since she was 5. I decided to help her celebrate by making her a Golden Birthday quilt. She had to go on a trip to California, but when she gets back in town, she will get it. She knows I'm making her a gift, and I think she suspects what it might be, but I told her I wasn't telling because it was a surprise. :o) Want to see? (That's my little grandson in the picture.)

And here's the back. I think it's a beautiful match...especially for a thrift store sheet. I love to use those for backings. I think she'll like it.

Did you notice that there are 27 golden hearts at the top? Yup. I just can't decide if I want to tell her, or let her discover it for herself.
