I have been working on a special project for my Mom for quite a while. It was intended as last years Mother's Day present (don't judge me for being so slow), and I FINALLY got it done.
This quilt is not traditional. My mom had a coverlet for her bed that she liked, but wasn't "colorful" enough. She asked me if I would applique some fabric onto it, and I reluctantly agreed.
Why reluctantly you ask? Because this quilt is HUGE, and I have a small throat machine. Also, I do not have adequate hand applique skills. Nevertheless I got it done after struggling to fit it under my machine.
I also made the pillow shams, and the throw pillow. I had a great time with making these because they were easier to maneuver. I was able to piece batting scraps for the pillow shams so I felt extra resourceful, and the last of the fabric scraps were just enough to make the throw pillow! Score!
My mom loves it (thankfully), and my favorite part is that I have one more project crossed off the list! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
P.S. Thoughts and prayers to all the victims of the Connecticut shooting today. It is a terrible tragedy, and the nation is mourning with you today.
