Esther turns 1 year old and gets her Birthday Quilt!

Our sweetie Grand baby Esther turned a year old on July 12th! My how a year went by and how she has grown and given us such joy! We had a party here on July 16th and it was a grand time with family and friends! Here are a few of Esther's Birthday Pictures!

Esther with her Smash cake. You know I thought about "Smash Cakes". We never had them for our kids when they were little, Esther did finger poking with her cake and then wanted Meme (me) to lick the frosting off of those fingers.  

For Esther's birthday I made her her own Throw size quilt with woofies and putties on it. I also believe that every girl deserves a pink polka dot binding! I had bought a fat quarter bundle of the center fabrics minus the aqua , but there was a blue chevron fabric I didn't use, it seemed to clash, but I was tickled pink to find someone destashing a week later more fabrics from this Maude Asbury line and and so I was able to make it larger and use the rest on the back. 

The pieced backing of Esther's quilt.  

                             Here is a close up of some woofies and the polka dot binding.

Well, that's it for now, off to bed I go!
