Some of you might recall that when Birdie was in Texas working on her master's degree, she taught herself how to quilt.

She made a lovely baby quilt for Breezy. And yes, it was a hint. The lovelies are really ready to be aunties and the pressure is on for Breezy and BestSonInLawEVER to give them a niece or nephew. Sorry, no picture of this one.

Then, at Christmas this past year, she made Breezy a big quilt. The lovelies draw names every year. Birdie drew Breezy's name and so Breezy got a quilt.

I decided that, if I was ever going to get a quilt, I was going to have to demand ask for one. I mean, as Queen Bee around here, I should have a quilt, right?

So, I demanded asked for a Christmas quilt. And, for my birthday, I got this:

Here's a little closer shot at some of the squares---

Can you see what she put underneath? Polka Dots! I LOVE polka dots! And they're red and green!

I LOVE it! It's perfect!

And now, I shall demand beg and plead for an autumn one. And a spring one. And a summer one. OH! And there's the one that I saw on public television where each square looks like a painting. Yeah, and then...
