A Quilt for My Mama

Tomorrow is Mother's Day and I made my Mama a little quilt. I chose soft colors and low volume in fabrics that reminded me of her and a simple square block I could quilt myself. 


I used bits of leftovers for a scrappy binding.


The quilting is all straight lines on either side of each seam. This was the most fun I've had quilting, ever. I will use this again as it was such a pleasure and so relaxing.


I took the quilt to my parent's house and used their pretty brick wall for some photos.


You can see the soft, butter yellow backing fabric.


It is a very little quilt, only 42 x 60 after washing.


It might be small but it's perfect for my Mama.

Happy Mother's Day, Mama!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I love quilts that look like yours. I have quilted for a long time and it took me quite a while to realize that the quilts I enjoy making the most are those just like yours -- I prefer straight line quilting to all the swirls and flourishes so popular now. I like that I can do it by hand or machine and it is relaxing. I find the "showier" stuff not relaxing to do at all. So glad to see that somebody has the same idea as me. And I love your choice of fabrics. As I have aged, I just find "soft" to be so appealing whether in a tactile way or visually. I really like your quilt and I am sure your Mama does too.
