Mother’s Day Sew Day

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.

  1. I have photos of my mom and my siblings and a scarf that I would like to make a pillow for my current niece. This is something that would be a memorabilia . Due to the fact that my mother is in hospice and thought it would be a great gift for my brother that just had a baby out in the west coast that unfortunately our mother will probably not have a lovely opportunity to meet her grandchild.

    Please let me know how this could happen for a nice memory.

    Thank you,
