Finally I can share this! You’ve seen some pieces here and there of this quilt, but what I kept secret is that it was being made as a gift for my mom. Combination birthday and mothers day gift. Late for both, of course!
She’s seen different parts of the progress, since I was working on it during the sewing retreat I went to where we sat next to each other, but she never knew I was making it for her.
This is using my Blind Tiles pattern that I am working the details out on.
I couldn’t decide between the teal binding or black, but then I thought about it and I know my mom loves loves loves bright colors, so I had to use the teal.
I did the binding in about 5 hours. 70×70 quilt, so it’s around a lap size I think.
Pixie, of course, had to help me with the binding.
Yes… I did the binding with her curled up in the quilt haha.
Mom loves it! Yay!
Hm. I should have gotten some pictures of the quilting. Sandy did an excellent job, and even included a special little surprise in the quilting. A little quilted squirrel! (I’ll see if I can remember to get a couple pictures one of these days).
