Mum would have been PROUD!

Well, I hope she would've!

I started making this quilt over five years ago.

I was making it for Mum for Mother's Day 2006 but she passed away

Mum and I celebrating her 88th Birthday!
before she saw it.

I'll be the first to admit the design and fabrics are 

a little old fashioned but it was 

what Mum liked...

I have spent the last few days machine quilting and finishing it.

I have this wonderful feature on my machine, which is a bit like cruise control in 

a car....

Press this little button and the machine sews itself.

I find this has helped me master my FMQ technique because I have one less   

action  to worry about.

Disengage the presser foot, set the speed, press the button and away we go!

I was having a great time until I saw this! LOL!

Yes, I'd doubled over the quilt onto the back and quilted though 6 layers!

 I must say I am happy with how the quilt has turned out...

It is not perfect but there is a lot of love in this quilt.

And that's certainly more important than perfection, don't you think!

I know Mum would agree!

Happy sewing!



  1. Suz, Such a lovely quilt and your mom would have been so tickled with this quilt. Even more because you made it for her. What a great finish too! I love your machine quilting....even when you double over the quilt...tee hee! I can't tell you how many times I have done that. And what a precious picture of you and your sweet :)

  3. This is a gorgeous quilt and there is no doubt your Mum would have been delighted to have it and I bet she is delighted that you have finished it too. Love the quiting job - well done!
