As Mother's Day and my mother's birthday approached in 2012 I was preparing for emigration from Australia to the USA and I decided to make a quilt for my mum to give her on my farewell trip to Narrabri.
Mum had given me some gorgeous green fabric years before that I never quite wanted to use, until this quilt. It was a difficult color to find fat quarters to match but it turned out okay.
And of course it's my stitching pedal foot! Just a hairline fracture so should be okay in two weeks.
So I did tidy up my sewing studio today and organized my WIPs
I'm just going to plan to sew my AES sampler QAL blocks, my Orphan Block Odyssey quilt and use my purple scraps to make some "almost hashtag" blocks for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt this month. I'll just hand stitch, design quilt patterns or work on my rag rug project most of the month.
I'm also dog sitting my grandpup Leo for ten days so four dogs will keep me busy.
And on Monday hubby traded in his car and bought this fabulous Dodge Challenger which we are both loving.
But of course I haven't been able to drive it yet thanks to the broken foot? 😫😥
Block 34 of my Adventurously Epic Sampler quilt is available now on my website. Click on the BOW tab above to find the link.
This is the block.
And you can make a quilt like this if you make multiples and change the colors 😍
