Happy Birthday Mom!

Made this for my Mom's birthday next week. The woman in the middle is meant to look like her. On Sundays when we eat together there are 10 of us around the table, (The 10 hearts over her head). She always wears an apron. I gave her the fabric for the apron she is wearing. The words are the way we describe her when we talk about her. I am excited to give it to her.

6" ~12" mini quilt swap

You're smiling aren't you? Carol made this cheery, bright, happy quilt for me! I just love that bunny, and those carrots are SO orange it makes me sigh in contentment. She name this quilt "9 Carrots." Pretty clever if you're asking me!

I am thinking Easter candy ... Thanks Easter Bunny, bawk, bawk.

6" ~12" mini quilt swap

This is a mini quilt I made for Carol in Wisconsin. She was tired of the cold and ready for some spring and was feeling like she'd lost her creative mojo. I really wanted to send her some joy and the result was this mini.

I was inspired by this tutorial girl on a swing by comfortstitching. I changed it up a bit ... can you believe I created that girl doing a cartwheel? I was pretty excited that it turned out the way I saw it in my head!

Happy Stitching!
