Mother's Day Quilting

As one of my gifts to my mom for Mother's Day, I told her I'd come spend the day with her and do whatever she wanted. Usually when I come to visit, I bring one of my many projects and she helps me finish or get started. So I really wanted to work on one of her projects that she never gets time to work on. She bought this beautiful fabric, Iced Mocha by Moda, and is making the "Don't Fence Me In" quilt pattern. It is so adorable. She wants to use it on her bed (Cal King size) for the summer. We had a fantastic day! We sewed for about 9 hours. My kids were angels (totally surprising) and had a really fun day too, and we were lucky enough to sew, talk, and eat brownies. Couldn't ask for a better day! Here's some pictures of the project in progress. I'll post a picture of the completed quilt once we finish (the next time I'll be down to visit). There's over 900 pieces because the quilt is so large. After this we're starting a quilt together for my grandma for her birthday in October, so I'll have to post about that quilting adventure once we get started.

  1. That is so nice of you to help your mom. What a great Mother's Day gift, plus you get to spend time together. How were you ever able to do that with kids around? Can't wait to see the finished quilt. Happy quilting!
