I used the tips and tutorial from Crap I've Made. Have I mentioned that I freakin' love that blog title? I even used the template she provided for the number 1. Ain't nobody got time to reinvent the wheel here people!
Val @ Purple Boots and Pigtails gave me some inside info on how to machine appliqué. I wrote 'em down in my trusty notebook and followed them to the letter on this one.
We had a great day of celebrating as a family today. Birthday pancakes, ripping the paper off their first presents, lots of singing and smiling! And tomorrow, there will be cake!
And since it's Friday, I'm linking up with TGIFF @ Quilt Matters and Finish Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts
