A Quilt for my Momma

A FINISH!! I finished my Momma's quilt today. She doesn't read my blog, so it is safe to show the picture here. I cannot wait to put it in the mail on Monday and send it off to her. It is a surprise you see. I'm quite excited to hear her reaction when she gets it in the mail. I will write her a little note to explain why I made it for her. She can either put it on her bed, or snuggle under it while she reads her Nook. She loves to read her books. It isn't a huge quilt, and so it should suit her for which ever she chooses. I'll let you all know her reaction.

Been Busy

So I've been busy lately, and I have a lot to show for it. Here are some pictures to show my work of late. I actually quilted a finis in January.
I finished four placemats and a hot pad.
I also finished this table topper that I placed on my formal dining room table after I took this picture. Meanwhile I have been working on a quilt called Vintage Tin for my mother. Here are a few of the blocks that I have embroidered. All of the stitchwork is being done in black with the exception of the one car you will see that is blue. My mom drove a light blue car when she was younger, and drove into a gas station where my dad worked. He pumped her gas and she fell in love with him there... AHHHH!! So I changed the name of the gas station in the pattern to my daddy's name and stitched that in blue as well. All of the fabric will be in black and white as well. The only things in color will be my daddy's name and the blue car. I am hoping she will get the hint.. when she receives the quilt as a surprise.
Here is the portion of the stitchwork showing the car and my daddy's name.
