Moving on …

Mom finished assembling her HST diamond top yesterday and I got it loaded on the longarm today. Brief instructions for this one is on my website.

If it looks familiar, it’s because it’s just like mine … The same size, using the same fabrics. I’d already gotten it about half quilted before it was time to walk Finn and give him his afternoon break!

Before I got it loaded, I cut strips for Mom to make a log cabin runner and she started piecing while I was quilting. She going to appliqué some bears and trees on this one.

She also finished binding that turtle quilt last night – I’ll get a photo of the whole quilt when Keith gets home and can hold it up outside for me but I’ll share a photo of Mom binding it … you’re going to see a lot of Mom binding this trip because my goal is to quilt 7 tops for her!


  1. I love this post. I enjoy seeing your mother. I am so happy for her and for you that she has an interest in quilting. I often wonder how people navigate elder age if they have no “hobbies”.
