My bed has a new quilt................
My Mom is the BEST! Each year she makes a quilt for one of her kids - I have patiently been waiting 7 years for my quilt (only 'cause I am her 7th child) - but I didn't think I would see this day coming because she has threatened me that she would never make me a quilt because I am a little picky and I know how to quilt.
BUT...................... She made me one! Yahoo! I LOVE IT! We picked out the fabric last year - Simple Abundance by Bonnie & Camille - and I love how it turned out. The quilt is from a magazine, not sure which one - but my mom did the center of the quilt a little different.
Anyway - I can't tell you how fun it is for me to walk into my room and see this new quilt on my bed knowing that my mom made it for me. I will treasure it forever! I love you Mom!
Oh - and she made me the pillow throws as well - I love her - she made me think I was going to have to make those myself so it was a fun surprise when she gave me those as well.
We just spent the last three days with my parents and my brother and sister and it was so much fun - they just left so I am totally sad knowing I won't get to see them until May when I am up in Salt Lake checking out Market.
My mom pieced the quilt and quilted it as well - I think it is beautiful. She told me how nervous she has been on whether or not I would like it, but no worries there - she did a beautiful job.
I absolutely love the cross-hatch in the borders. So AWESOME!! The quilting is just perfect for the quilt. She tried to do something different in each section of the quilt and it worked out really well.
This is the center of the quilt that she changed up a bit - I LOVE IT!
If you look closely you can see that she quilted "Clint & Judi" in the center. So fun!
Thanks again Mom - I love you so much!
