A birthday gift from my sister!!!

My birthday is on tuesday. My sister decided to bring me an early birthday present. She made me a wonderful little quilt, a nice little bag, gave me some beautiful vintage buttons, and gave me some half yard cuts of nice light fabrics. She knows that I love pinwheels, and she made a beautiful little pinwheel quilt. She even hand quilted it with a circle design. I just love it. I didn't notice the quilting from the front, but when I turned it over you could see the wonderful circle design. I have some pics below to show this. It's a bit hard to see. She also gave me 6 half yard cuts of light fabrics. They are great. I always go to quilting shops to buy light fabrics and always leave with a bunch of darks. She knows this cause I go to quilt shops with her. So, I really needed some lights. I love the ones she selected for me. I love buttons, and she gave me these wonderful vintage buttons. I'll be able to use them on bags and all my little projects I do. Thank you so much Sis for the wonderful gifts. I just love them.

Love the pinwheel quilt!
The shirt and skirt set you made for your daughter is adorable - I've been wanting to do some applique for Sophie but have been to chicken... what did you use to fuse the fabric on the t-shirt?
