Birthday Quilt

              I've had this project on my mind and tucked away in my files for a very long time!  Shame on me! But all it took was a grand daughter's birthday to inspire me and here is the finished lap quilt, just in time for Chloe's 6th birthday yesterday! She loves it!!  It's a bandanna lap quilt, so easy to make and super fast too, only took me one afternoon! Now, I owe the other grand kids one of their own, will let them pick and choose the colors they want. Chloe leaves on vacation today so it'll be perfect for the trip, in the car or just for nap time! I signed it so she could always remember when she got it, the birthday quilt was a hit!

        Another hit was the cupcakes in a jar, yep, I made one for each child and a few extra for us adults, with the birthday girl having a candle on top of hers! I'm in love with this idea, and it was fun making the layers of goodies, so many possibilities. I started with a cupcake, then brownie, then marshmallows, strawberries, frosting and sprinkles on top! This will be our new birthday tradition!


  1. That is an adorable quilt. I can see why Chloe loved it so much. I didn't quite understand the cupcake description though. Sounded like lots of ingredients went into it but I wasn't sure how it was assembled and why it's call cupcake in a jar.

  2. Oh, that cupcake in a jar sounds so yummy!!
    Very cute blanket-the colors are perfect for a little one!

  3. That bandana quilt is adorable! I may start buying them up and do one, too!

    I've never tried the cupcake in a jar, but I can see how kids (and big kids, too:) would love them!

    Hope you are staying cool--this weather is just a little too HOT!

  4. Cute, Cute, Cute....this is an adorable lap quilt and I know this is something that she will always cherish...
    You must show us pictures of the cupcakes in a jar....I have tried to picture them in my mind, but not sure I have the jest of it...
    have a great evening.

  5. Chloe's quilt turned out perfect! And those cupcakes sound yummy and very cute. I've made and given the 'bread in the jar' for gifts (Christmas).. but not tried the cupcakes or pies in the jars yet. Lovin' the idea too! -Tammy

  6. cute bandanna quilt... I know she will enjoy using for many years. I had my students make these one year in Interior Design class and we donated them to our homeless shelter...They were also fast to make.

    I am waiting for a special occasion to make your birthday cakes in a jar!!
    Thanks for all of your creative ideas..
