It is always my birthday

Whenever I like something it is always my birthday.
And I like a lot. My friends know this and let me be. Great friends.

Modern Quilt Guild Challenge

The last challenge for the modern quilt guild from Germany was circles. You can check them out here: I have always wanted to make a circle quilt, and so I got started right away before summer. I had two small layer cakes in black/white that I wanted to use, and choose a green as my circle color. I had so much fun making different circles in different methods, hand appliqued, machine appliqued or both. I made the circle in different sizes and even cut some of them in half or quarters.
This is the finished quilt. 

I wanted to add some yo-yo's and buttons. 

I quilted the circles all different, some even by hand. 

The background is quilted in a soft meander, since I did not want to get the meander on the circles. 
This was fun, and I now have to think about the next challenge from the Modern Quilt Guild Stuttgart.

Summer vacation with the family

I had the pleasure to host my family's yearly get together at my house in Washington State. All my family lives in Germany, besides my brother who lives in Switzerland.
Only a three sisters came with their spouses, and we had a great day in Seattle at the Chihuly Garden and Glass. If you are ever in Seattle, you may want to go and see this garden, I can only recommend it.
The inside of a huge bowl.

Looks like a banana tree. All made out of glass. 

I normally don't post pictures with people in it for my blog, but I love this one with the reflection of myself and two of my older sisters in it, and the Space Needle. 

The greens and blues are awesome. 
I am not sure how I managed to take a picture without people in it. But I did.
