A Birthday Quilt for a Special Girl

I made this quilt for my youngest granddaughter.  Today is her birthday.  She is 9 on the 9th.  A special birthday for her.  The quilt is made from my stash of fabrics.  The butterflies and stripe were left over from her room decoration projects this past summer.  The purple and blue are from her older sister's room decoration projects.  

The back is a black fabric with similar color dots.  The quilting is by machine.  My friend calls it a meandering design.  Not sure if that is the official name.  I used my new Janome 15000 and I'm still learning to free motion quilt on the machine.  Every machine is a little different when using free motion.  I think I'm going to like quilting on this machine.  If not, I can always get out my old trusty Bernina 165.  I learned to free motion on that machine years ago.

What a wonderful collection of special fabrics for a special birthday gal. Nine on the 9th...that is a memorable birthday. I call it a meander stitch too...both on the longarm and the shortarm. Funny, I learned to meander on my first Janome...the 9000. It's come a long way, huh? I still love that machine.
