So, I asked my mom, (which lives 550 miles away) if she would make a quilt with me. This way we could do something together without actually “being” together. She doesn’t “do” quilting like I do but she has done a few quilt tops and can sew clothes, curtains etc… so this isn’t completely foreign for her. We decided to do a rainbow quilt. We decided how big we wanted the quilt so we would know how many blocks to do as well as divided up what colors we each will have. We will mail the blocks back and forth to each other. We originally were going to assemble as we went but have decided we would wait until all the blocks are done. I made the first red block and have already mailed it. I didn’t get a picture. 😦 While time allowed I made 2 more. I decided to do a little applique on these. (close your eyes mom if your reading this) 🙂 I love how these turned out. I think I will do an applique block in each color for each row.
I cannot explain how excited I am to be working on this with my mom! We have talked in length several times over the phone and I just cherish every moment I get to chat away not only about quilting but about quilting with my MOM! How lucky am I ?
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
