I love my Mum!
How much I love her, has been cemented with the birth of my own daughter. I don’t recall ever making her anything other than the usual pencil and clag covered ‘love letters’ we wrote as children, and certainly, never something like a quilt.
I am rectifying this, immediately.
I free motion quilted in a loose, flowery, stipple. In some places the flowers look more like butterflies.
For the back, I used a dotty minky. It is luxurious and divine to touch and snuggle under.
Pretty swirls, fruit and flowers in fabric with coral, aqua, olive, black and cream.
A better shot of the back, which shows up the quilting lines a bit better.
Perfect joins on the binding!
I hand stitched the binding, with the final stitches being placed today following an exhilarating morning at AusKick.
Master 6 had his first kick in a game, which follows the handball, kicking, marking and running drills.
30 meters, dead eye, through the center!
In his usual style, no emotion … yet he was a tired and happy boy tonight.
