Birthday Quilt

My friends Amy and Lynn made this little wallhanging for me for my 50th birthday last year. They chose a panel of sayings about mid life and paper pieced the blocks for the quilt and added a few Red Hat ladies to the mix. The border is also red hat fabric. For those who are unfamiliar with "Red Hat ladies", you are eligible for membership in the Red Hat Society when you turn 50. You can then go on trips and wear purple clothing with red hats! Thank you Amy and Lynn for the wonderful gift for my 'special' birthday :-).

Hi Kelley:

Thanks for the comments on the quilts! We are doing well..Jake's busy, busy busy with his school work, but enjoying teaching! My sewing room is right beside his office, so we can work side by side :-).

Hi Jacqui,
I just love that quilt. Maybe you could make me one in about 7 years:) I had never heard about the red hat club. What a blast! Hey I am blogging too -- check it out at mamma sue's musings. I have a great picture there of Jake's Mom.

Hey Jacqui,

Red Hat Society...what a laugh! It's a very serious club down here. We were out for dinner once and sat at a table next to the "Red Hat Ladies". A lot of chatting and laughing happening at that table. One of the ladies told me I had a lot to look forward too!! They were wearing their hats and purple too.

Your quilts are beautiful
