Moms Birthday present completed.

8 Mar

Well my Moms birthday has come and gone and now I can post about my latest finished project. In the new tradition that I have started by making the people I love in my life quilts, I made my Moms.. It’s my biggest quilt to date. It measures about 77″ square. Even though this was a simple quilt to put together I had lots of difficulties. Let’s just call them “brain farts” 😉 I love the finished product and I am so glad that my Mom loves it too.

Pixelated Heart Quilt

With just a simple quilt back.

My sister and I recruited the kids to write little messages to their Grandma D. I know that she will love and cherish this quilt. She brought it to work the other day. Happy Birthday Mom glad you love your quilt. My poor Dad has been left out of the quilt mix. Honestly I didn’t think that he would want one but after seeing my Moms quilt he can’t wait for his. Father’s day is around the corner I foresee making a quilt for Father’s Day in my future.

I plan on making this quilt for my daughter using Moda fabric in the Vintage Modern collection by Bonnie and Camille. I love this line. The colors are so fresh and sweet. This will be the first big purchase I make once I sell something in my etsy shop. I want the whole collection….did I say how much I love it?

I also want to make this:

Isn’t this one of the cutest pincushions you’ve ever seen? I love it and can’t wait to make this too. You can NEVER have too many pincushions I say.

 

Just keep sewing just keep sewing

That has been my moto for this week. I thought that I would post a picture of the quilt that I made for my sons 9th birthday. He picked the colors and the pattern. It felt like it took forever…well I guess it kind of did, I started this last summer before his 8th birthday. Then we moved and it got put away and I finally picked it up again. Once I got sewing it actually didn’t take that long to finish. Don’t know why I do that to myself 🙂 Oh well. Here is the spiderweb quilt tutorial that I used on sew mama sew.

This quilt was machine pieced and hand and machine quilted. I love the backing fabric.
