It was a wonderful Mother’s Day. Johnny came home early April. He is doing very well. Here is a picture of Johnny, with his two friends – Duck and Goose! Between keeping up with Jimmy and Johnny, there hasn’t been any sewing in this home. For Mother’s Day, my mom and I spent the day quilting!
About two years ago, my mom and I bought a star burst pattern and specific fabrics to go with this project. This weekend, we broke into the project for a Mother’s Day Sew Day. My fabric theme is batiks with a black background. My mom’s theme is also batiks with various teals from a jelly roll. With a dozen pieces in each block and 48 total blocks, we spent most of the day sorting and cutting. We are now set to sew! I am looking forward to seeing this quilt evolve.
Lastly, I finished the backing for the triangle quilt that I started back in January. The pattern is the Chopsticks Quilt Pattern. It is all basted and ready for quilting! Maybe I will make some progress one of these evenings.
