Back in November, I was visiting my mom. I had pretty much completed my first quilt top, and I was trying to decide what the next project would be. Looking at pictures, we were both struck by jewel tones paired with black, and came across a pindot pinwheel pattern that may work. It was agreed – this would be a quilt for mom.
Between the cutting (hours and hours of cutting) and piecing, I finally finished the quilt top a few months ago. It’s messy. It doesn’t always match at the seams. It was a stupid thing to try to tackle for a second attempt at a quilt top. But it is what it is! And this week, I will actually finish the quilt! She’s been very patient….
After getting squirrel’s quilt sent off, I came up with an idea to solve a problem that kept me from finishing mom’s quilt – I didn’t have quite enough backing. So I created a panel to finish the back and tie in the colors from the front.
It’s too nice of a day around here to quilt this today, but it’ll happen this week.
