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!
