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.
