Mother’s Day Quilts

For Mother’s Day this year I used my novice quilting skills to make two quilts.  One for my mom and one for my boyfriend’s mom.  Thankfully they both liked them.

I had some fat quarters I hadn’t used yet.  I picked them up at Joann’s. Well, let me make a confession real quick, I have an addiction to fat quarters.  I love them.  I have a hard time passing them up.  So needless to say, there are more than just a few fat quarters in my sewing room at any given time. Also needless to say, most of the projects I do, use fat quarters.  Anyway…. moving on….

I sewed the fat quarters together and selected a fabric for the back.  I slapped them together and tried my hand at free motion quilting. A simple wavy line was all I was up for, but I did it.  I chose a thread that would stand out and dove right in.  Here’s what they looked like:

Each quilt took me about 6 hours to complete.
