Mother's Day Quilt

Some of you may remember when I was making Granny Squares? Here's a refresher..


We'll i've been turning them into a quilt for my mom whose a crocheter
When I saw these blocks they seemed so appropriate!

My mom's the first person that taught me to use a sewing machine,
she made me my first quilt and helped me make another when my favorite color 
changed from pink to blue. I'm fortunate enough to be close with my mom, 
she supports me and takes an interest in things that I do.. so much so that she's accompanying me to Sewing Summit in October (even though she hasn't quilted in year!)

So this quilt is for one of the most selfless woman I know as well as one of the 
kindest, nicest and most genuine..

Here's the completed quilt!
For the quilting I kept it simple and just outlined each of the granny squares


I decided to stay completely with Domestic Bliss for this one

Even the binding!

So, Happy Mother's Day Mom!!
Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there.. enjoy your day!
