Another Mom Story


See the backing of this quilt? In the picture it looks blue but it is actually purple. My mother asked me...."Now why did you put a BLUE backing on that quilt?" I said "Actually Mother, it's purple!" She didn't seem any more excited with that answer. We didn't go into discussion about it but I think she feels the backing should MATCH the front. I was having so much fun with these quilts why do something like match the back to the front??? I like the surprise element of it all. And I am hearing great stories about this quilt and the one her brother received as well. These quilts are loved and I didn't get a citation from the quilt police.

Mission accomplished!!

My Inner Naughty Child

I should be binding mom's quilt. The binding is machine sewn on. I should be pulling fabrics for next quilts. I just don't want to. Wonder where this came from. I will just have to force myself to do something for a short period of time and I will get back in the swing of things.
