What’s Mom up to?!

She’s so busy … Completed all the projects I’d cut for her on my last visit including this little elephant quilt. She enjoys appliqué and has been making some of these quick little quilts with appliqué borders. I’ll post dimensions later but they turn out really cute. 

  
We also planned a bunch of new projects – I got 6 cut out for her and we ordered fabric for additional ones I’ll cut in July including a remake of this little 30’s quilt. The flower basket was in one of her books but she didn’t like the layout so I designed a new one for her. This quilt will go to my sister and she’s going to make a new one for herself.  Don’t you love the Baptist Fan quilting? I’m sure she’ll want that on the new one too – I’d better dust off my template. 

  

 I can’t wait to get back to some piecing myself.

    The elephant quilt is just darling. The print is so cute and bright. It is wonderful that your mom can still sew such cute things. You are a team cutting and sewing = beautiful quilts
