Happy Birthday to my mama!

My mom celebrates a special birthday tomorrow.  Every birthday is a big deal, but  considering she was diagnosed with breast cancer over 20 years ago, this is a really big deal! God is good and   I love you, Mama!!


This is her 'happy birthday' quilt that I made for her.  In January, a dear friend  of mine started swapping nine patch blocks with me each month.  We were not very far into the swap before I realized that I wanted to use my blocks to make something for mama's birthday. 


I put this quilt together and quilted it in sections, then put the whole thing together.  There was a LOT that I like about this method, but a few things that were difficult for me.   I'm not sure if I will try it again or not.

This was the first time I had stitched the entire binding by machine.... loved that!!  I will definitely do that again. 

Now, back to the Underground Railroad quilt....

I do love it. And I love that you and Wanda did the block swap and the meanings that were told me about the blocks. I have had it over me every day since I received it. Thank you so much !! I love you!!
