Blue & White Dutch Quilt

This quilt was so flat and square it was almost a pleasure doing the stitch in the ditch.

All the seam allowances on those 1/2" grey borders - perfectly pressed.
The center section with the Dutch motifs is a panel.
Pale grey thread used throughout, which looks lovely on the white back.
DH is celebrating another birthday and the party seems to be going on for a week.  Last Friday we were out for dinner with friends, Saturday we went to the movies (Hunger Games - frightening theme but very well done), Sunday was brunch at the local cafe, taking advantage of a 2 for 1 coupon (thanks Sue!), tonight was a fancy cheap supper at A & W (using another coupon, heh, heh) and a birthday cake made from scratch by moi (although I did get caught in the grocery store buying frosting in a can), and this Friday we'll be out for dinner again with our nephew & his wife.

I had to make a trip to the bank yesterday to pay our income taxes, so in honour of that I will show you the funny that a friend sent us.  Warning - potty language.
