Keeping Mom Busy – part 3

My Mom quickly returned the blocks that I had sent her.  They look great with her wonderful blanket stitching around the edges.

Now it was time to finish up the designs so I spent a fun day working in my studio, once again pulling out every piece of fabric that I owned!!!!  Here are the resulting blocks…..

I laid all of the blocks out just to see if the colors would work…..DSC01532

…..and then wrapped it up in Christmas paper and sent it to Mom as yet another present for her to open!!!

My task in the next month will be to decide how to set the quilt together and what kind of border to put on it.   I have been thinking about doing a flower vine around the edge with lots of the different flowers on it, but I will need to see how Mom feels about sewing  MORE flowers!!!

The blocks are beautiful and look great together. Your mother is certainly a fast and skilful worker
