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....
